2019 Lapierre Raisins Gaulois Beaujolais
The Lapierre name is central to the story of why Beaujolais is amidst a sustained and heartfelt renaissance with drinkers of all ages. Father Marcel’s legacy is in good family hands with children Matthieu and Camille honouring Papa’s pioneering work.
Even junior bottlings like this Raisins Gaulois, animated by crunchy, vibrant red cherry and chalky pomegranate fruits. Such bright, genuine likeability and purity despite its humble Vin de France labelling.
Of course this is no happy accident. Its gorgeous young vine fruit comes from the famous Morgon Cru, not yet mature enough to make the cut for their top cru bottlings.
Drink it chilled, with unfettered mind, thinking of warm spring days and cured picnic snacks.
