Region: Beaujolais, Burgundy, France Grape(s): Gamay Drinks Best: Now - 3 Years
It’s impossible to overstate the importance of Marcel Lapierre in terms of influencing winemaking in Beaujolais, France, or even the world. As one of the original ‘Gang of Four’ nearly half a century ago, Marcel helped to spearhead more natural, organic winemaking in an era when chemical fertilizers and pesticides were heavily relied upon. This wine comes from the youngest wines on the estate and is envisioned as “a wine... that you drink like a beer... when you don’t really want to drink a beer.” Chill it down and enjoy a panoply of red fruits like ripe cherries, cranberries, and raspberries with a structured, spicy finish.
