M&C Lapierre Raisins Gaulois Gamay
Origin: Beaujolais, France
indigenous yeasts only
Notes from the US Importer: "A perfect initiation to the domaine’s wines, this bottling is designed specifically for the purpose of drinking—not tasting, not spitting, but jolly, carefree quaffing. Although it consists of Gamay grown within the Morgon cru, the high yields from these young vines exceed the limit required to qualify for the Morgon appellation. As a result, this juicy red—loaded with bright, playful fruit—is low in alcohol and delightfully refreshing. It begs for a slight chill and to be served alongside charcuterie, cheeses, picnic fare, burritos, or just about anything."
