Region: Beaujolais, France
Producer: Domaine Marcel Lapierre
Type: Red Wine
100-year-old vines on the Côte du Py for 80%, and 20% from Douby. It will have had 9 months in barrel though without new wood. Bright lively purple with notably more depth. Fresh and fine with more tannins than the other cuvées, though the wood stays completely in the background as far as flavour profile is concerned.
This special Cuvée, produced only in the best years, is made from his 100-year old vines, mostly on the Côte de Py. With its waxed capsule and its longer cork, it is clear that Marcel thinks this is something special
