Winemaker's Notes

Located in Villie-Morgon, the vines are 45 years old in average and are extended on 11 hectares with 1 on Côte du Py. All cultivation is undertaken with the organic methods. Our wines are raised in old oak, in thin sediments (without SO2), for approximately 9 months. At bottling time, we racked carefully and put together in a big tank different barrels and tuns.

From biodynamic producer Marcel Lapierre, this is probably as good as it got in 2007. It's a rich wine, concentrated, although the crisp fruits of the year tend to dominate. There are raspberry flavors, very pure, very fresh, but with some good depth of flavor. Using minimal amounts of sulfur and farming naturally, Lapierre's wine exudes aromas of cherry, licorice and violets. Enjoy with grilled salmon or poultry.

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
