The word seems to have gotten out about Beaujolais: There is a restaurant in Brooklyn that only pours Beaujolais and Chenin Blanc. Yann Bertrand's Fleurie was recently written up as a suggested pairing with Adele's new album. But one Beaujolais producer has always been highly in-demand (and highly unavailable) way before Beaujolais was cool. You guessed it—Yvon Metras, otherwise known as "The Pope of Beaujolais". From his Crus to this week's Beaujolais, Metras' wines are the gold standard in the region. 

This village-level Beaujolais could really be called alternative Fleurie terroir: planted in the Fleurie region, it comes from a single plot with granitic soils at the highest point in Fleurie, the parcel was only de-classified to Beaujolais because of its elevation. 2014 is an elegant, light-drinking Gamay (at only 11.5% alc.) with light earthy cherries on the nose. If you don't know Metras' wines, this is a fantastic introduction to the most-sought after, refined Gamays in France.  

Do you have enough Beaujolais in your cellar already? Not a problem. This wine can be opened right away like most Gamays, but Metras' wines also stand out because they are so incredibly ageable. He is one of the very few producers that makes long-aging village-level Beaujolaiswe've had this wine with 15+ years of age on it and it was an absolute knockout. Pick up a 6-pack, open a couple this year, and a few years further down the road. And make sure to act quickly— our previous Metras sales have sold out in record time.
