Yvon Métras is yet another of the 'founders of natural wine' or Beaujolais' sulfurless gang. A group of guys that started doing thing differently in the 80ies / 90ies and took the world by storm with their wildly energetic but balanced and elegant wines. Metrás is definitely in the wilder part of the gang and don't let the classic label fool you: there's some cool stuff happening here. Carbonic Maceration, beautiful ripe grapes, native yeasts and no sulfur: energy, energy, energy. Made for drinking fast, both because it's that thirst quenching and because it's not as good on day two as when you pop the cork.
