Le Beaujolais - 2021 - Mathieu et Camille Lapierre
Domaine Marcel Lapierre
Carried by notes of raspberry and soft spices, an essential thirst-quencher, a wine to share with friends over an apéritif, slightly chilled, with some charcuterie and laughs. On the palate, lots of freshness and huge drinkability, elegance and finesse.

No Raisins Gaulois cuvée this year, but a superb Beaujolais from vines that are 70 years old on average, grown organically and planted on three plots in the town of Lancié, neighboring Villié-Morgon. Usually intended partially for the Raisins Gaulois cuvée, Mathieu and Camille decided to vinify the grapes separately for this beautiful vintage. Manual harvesting, carbonic maceration in whole bunches, aging for 6 months in vats. Bottled without fining or filtration, just a micro-dose of sulphur.
