Red currants, raspberries and blueberries here. Beautifully fragrant and lifted. Consistent in the mouth, richly fruited again but with great freshness, flesh and weight, delivered in a lip smacking style. The cut and lift is what makes you really want to drink this. Another bargain Bojo from this latest signing. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 L&S (Jan 2020)

This ripe and yet tantalisingly tangy brouilly remains one of the best wines I’ve tasted all summer. It’s from a family domaine, all juicy redcurrants and iron. Best served slightly chilled, say with herby roast chicken, or cold roasted pork with fennel. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Sep 2020)

A family domaine making superb wines. This is gloriously perfumed with a sappy vitality. Pop it in the fridge for half an hour before opening to give it a bit of edge.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Jul 2020)

A blissful beaujolais, richly juicy, with an exhilarating sappy vigour. Try chilled with roast chicken. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Apr 2020)

Domaine Chevalier-Métrat

Sylvain et Marie-Noëlle Métrat work their immaculate vineyards traditionally in this beautiful corner of Odénas just on the southern side of the Mont Brouilly. This family farm is on a small scale just 9 hectares now, but done with real passion and much hard work.
When we last visited, Sylvain did not want to waste a moment waiting around for us to arrive, so we found him working away in the vineyards nearest the winery - the best place to wait for us without missing a moment amongst his old bush-vines where there is always something to do!
In an effort to not over extract flavour or tannins Sylvain avoids any pigeage during fermentation instead he gently submerges the cap and creates more of an infusion. This gives delicacy and an elegant complexity to the juice. The wines are the best we have tasted from this part of the world and offer incredible value for gorgeously crafted, serious wines from beautiful old vines. These are pretty, complex and really joyous.
