For Humid Weather: 2018 Lapierre, Raisins gaulois


Lapierre is great.  I recently tried a bottle 2018 Marcel Lapierre, Raisins gaulois, VDP after Phil pointed out its arrival.  This is a light wine, to drink over the next year.  It offers more than quafability for it adds just enough depth and just enough juiciness to make you take note.  Drink it during these hot, humid days we have here in Washington, DC.  You may find it on the front shelves at MacArthur Beverages.

2018 Marcel Lapierre, Raisins gaulois, VDP – $16
Imported by Kermit Lynch.  This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from young vines mostly located in Morgon.  Alcohol 12.5%.  Beautiful, delicate red berries are slightly tart but pure with good depth.  There is some ripeness and restrained juiciness for fun.  Best this year but should survive the winter  **(*) Now – 2020.
