"Métras's 2019 Fleurie is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with scents of raspberries, wild berries, bergamot, rose petals and spices. It is medium to full-bodied, bright and vibrant, with refined tannins, succulent acids and a long, precise finish. Delicately charged with residual carbon dioxide, to my palate, it's among the purest and most defined vintages Métras has produced in recent years. One of the godfathers of the natural wine movement in the Beaujolais, the elusive Yvon Métras shuns the press, but when his wines show well, they're some of the region's most captivating, so since I began covering this region, I've made a point of reviewing them from my own cellar. While some of the 2018s which had impressed me last year now show unpleasant levels of "goût de souris," a microbiological flaw reminiscent of mouse urine that some consider proof of authenticity, the young 2019s are—for now and for the most part—striking wines, with special mention due to a magical Fleurie that Métras fans will want to make a special effort to track down, (WA, 96 points)".
