Yvon Métras, Fleurie l'ultime comes from the exceptional terroirs of “Grille Midi” and “La Madonna”. This wine has greatly contributed to Yvon Metras' reputation as a top winemaker. Needless to say the perfectly ripe grapes are hand-picked and vinified with whole bunches before undergoing semi-carbonic maceration. An old press will do the rest of the job with great respect for the grapes, the pulp and the juice.

YVON MÉTRAS, Fleurie Organic, Natural
Yvon Métras produced his first vintage in 1988, from his family estate. He withdrew from the cooperative winery to join the gang of Jules Chauvet’s followers. Métras farms his 5.7-hectare vineyard the same way as that of the other Beaujolais greats (Lapierre, Foillard, Chanudet, Breton, Thevenet..): no chemicals, plowing, severe pruning, low yields and exceptional terroirs with iconic parcels like “Grille Midi” or “La Madonne”.
The perfectly ripe grapes are hand-picked and vinified with whole bunches before undergoing semi-carbonic maceration. An old press will do the rest of the job with great respect for the grapes, the pulp and the juice.
Métras is now widely seen as one of the very top producers in the region, if not the top; his wines, like the ones of Pierre Overnoy, Kenjiro Kagami or Claude Courtois are rare treats and are much sought after, they never fail to display authenticity, precision and vigour.
