Pacelet Lapierre Cousins 2017
Julienas, Beaujolais, France
This cuvée is the result of a collaboration between the Lapierres and their cousin Christophe Pacalet. Each vinifies their own cuvée of Juliénas gamay and then blend equal parts of each. They farm organically and vinify the wine following the same principles of native fermentation without sulfites originally implemented by their father and uncle, Marcel Lapierre. This is a deep ruby-colored wine that combines aromas of violet flowers, raspberries and spices. It shows an impressive structure and also a good concentration of fruit making it an age worthy Beaujolais that is delicious now.
