Yvon Metras Beaujolais Madame Placard


Country: France

Region: Beaujolais

Grapes: Gamay

Vintage: 2020

Alongside Thevenet, Lapierre, Foillard and Breton, Metras was a proponent of the revolutionary theory of Jules Chauvet and Jacques Neauport which kicked off the natural wine movement in France. Decades later he still works the same way farming just six hectares, meaning demand for these wines outstrips supply year on year. The vines have always been worked by hand, without chemical treatment, and without SO2. 

Mme Placard is Gamay sourced from Yvon's friend nearby, who has a similar farming philosophy. The perfect intro bottle to the great wines of Metras, with red berry fruit, tart cherry notes and some fresh herbs (mint, among others).
