Our opinion on this winery

Domain des Bertrand was founded by Louis Bertrand in the 1950’s. He settled in the Beaujolais region intending to do business with Paris and Lyon. Later, in the 1960’s, the domain expanded when Château Grand Pré- located in the Fleurie appellation zone- was purchased. And note that, “ Grand Pré” is also one of the registered climats of Fleurie and Morgon. Yann’s parents-Annick and Guy Bertrand- took over the domain in 1992 and even purchased a few extra adjoining parcels. In the late 1990s and early 2000s they began turning toward more eco-friendly practices in the vineyards: less herbicide, no or only minimal selected yeasts as well as no more sugar addition. Such practices definitely show the family’s environmental awareness.--- At first Yann had no intention of becoming a winegrower and found a job in the commercial sector. This job involved a lot of travelling, which gave him the opportunity to taste a great deal of wines here and there. Then he found himself working in wine bars and wine shops and rediscovered that he was after all the son of a winegrower. Back in his native region, he learnt a great deal about winemaking spending a lot of time with followers of Lapierre and Chauvet like Jean Foillard, Yvon Métras etc… --- Yann became passionate about soils which naturally lead him to turn to organic methods. And it was in 2013 that this 7.5 hectare-domain was certified as organic. He even started to cultivate his own 1.5 hectare parcel according to biodynamic principles. And from this parcel two new cuvee were born “ Cuvee Chaos” and Morgon “Cuvee Bio Dynamite”. And it was not long before these wines ‘s reputation spread by word of mouth. With his head screwed on right, Yann breathed new life into the family domain and definitely convinced us that the 3rd generation has taken a step in the right direction. We had a crush on these superb wines and this might just as well happen to you …
