Yann Bertrand’s philosophy is simple; attain the most beautiful balance possible for the soil, as a soil with good equilibrium will produce a grape that represents the terroir where it is grown.

Established in the 1950’s by Louis Bertrand, Les Bertrand is located in a special part of Beaujolais called ‘Grand-pré’. A section that straddles the crus of both Fleurie and Morgon, rich in sandy granitic soil. The estate wines from these appellations are uniquely different even though all the vines are in the same area. The complexity found in the vineyard is demonstrated through these different cuvees. There is also some cuvee from other appelations where Yann has sourced fruit from like minded growers.

A 2 hectare plot of 50 to 70 year old vines on fine granitic soils. Elevage in 225 litre barrels of 7+ years and demi-muids an additional 11 months aging in bottle prior to release. The fruit shines, this is a wine of power and structure. The tannins more defined than Chaos, yet still fine. The palate is fluid, there is tension and length. Blood orange, a little alpine herb, crushed rock.

Decant and then return it to the bottle to protect the perfume, watch as this unfurls, utterly delicious
