This distinct cuvée is grown on blue volcanic rock and schist, and the grapes average about 30 years of age. It's aged for 7 months in small, very old barrels. Only 330-350 cases are produced annually. Yann started working with this site after a couple of disastrous vintages in Fleurie and was so impressed with the wines that it has become a permanent part of the lineup.Like all of his wines it is a delight; fresh, fruity and pure but with complexity and clearly capable of spending some time in the cellar.

Yann Bertrand learned his trade from the likes of Jean Foillard, Yvon Metras and of course the granddaddy of them all Jules Chauvet. With Foillard and Metras as his mentors, Yann turned his family's grape-growing business (converted to organic in the '90s by his parents) into an estate with a cult following. Only indigenous yeast is used, no pesticides or insecticides are used, and nearly all cuvées are produced without any added SO2.

Yann endeavors to show off the beauty of Gamay, and the unique terroir of each individual parcel, and sees no reason to manipulate or add anything to his cuvées. The wines are undeniably alive, vibrant and fresh; they exude buvabilité, the French word for "drinkability" that really means something more like "these wines will compel you to continue drinking them."
