Domaine Lapierre - Vin de France 'Raisins Gaulois' 2022


In the northern hills of Beaujolais lies the pastoral Villie-Morgan, one of the ten cru villages permitted to print its name on the bottle, and also considered home of one of the best wines in Beaujolais. An hour from Lyon, the second largest city in France, Villie-Morgan is a century away in atmosphere. It is also home to a group of groundbreaking and sometimes controversial winemakers.

Marcel Lapierre, strives to make wines as naturally as possible, in the vineyard and in the winery. Lapierre's vines average 40 years of age, and his grapes are always picked at the latest possible moment in order to obtain the ripest possible fruit. No pesticides or chemicals are used in the vineyards and no sulfur or yeast is added during fermentation. The resulting wines are pure and fruity, not overly alcoholic, and always a pleasure to drink.

Gaulois, translated as “Gallic grapes,” is a Vin de France produced from young vines. The desire was to produce a wine that was accessible both in terms of taste and price. With it’s lively, fruity and easy-drinking character, Raisins Gaulois is very popular in bag-in-box (BIB) format in addition to bottle.
