Yann Bertrand
Oh!..., 2019

Grower: Yann Bertrand
Region: Beaujolais, France
Grape Varieties: Gamay
Viticulture: Organic
Size: 75cl bottle

For this cuvee, stellar winemaker on-the-rise Yann Bertrand picks his grapes overnight and brings them to his cellar for a long, cold, and fully carbonic maceration. A long fermentation gives time for the wine to develop stability without any additions; once ready for elevage, Yann choses from a curated selection of old barrels, and pairs each cuvee with a particular barrel he feels fits the nature of the wine. In the end, Oh! is a wonderfully crystalline, claret-coloured gamay with incredibly fine red fruit character, just a touch of juiciness, and lovely balance. Another exceptional cuvee from Yann and one that drinks wonderfully even in its infancy.
