    July 11, 2019 - [Magnum] This nose is massively fruity with bright raspberry and blueberry. Very playful primary aromatics. I don’t see the bubblegum people use to describe Beaujolais, this is all fruit punch right now, and without any earth tones or secondary development either. A hint of greenness that could be stems. Lots of fun on the nose. On the palate this is straightforwardly delicious, easygoing, bang of fruit punch up front with surprising staying power. Some tartness to the raspberry. Surprisingly weighty mid palate and powerful finish. Still stylistically lighter than anything I could compare to. Good and a lot of fun. Is all Beaujolais like this?

    April 19, 2019 - This is serious Beaujolais. Everything is in balance. Need a little decant to fully express itself. Will probably evolve for a couple of years but very good right now. I am sad that it was my only bottle.

    March 30, 2019 - Unbelievable quality. Lapierre shows that Beaujolais is grossly undervalued as a wine region. Incredibly fruit with a rich and full acidity

    March 20, 2019 - This wine continues to drink well with its strawberry fruit, zippy acidity and a medium finish. It is easy to quaff.

  • Somm David T Likes this wine: 92 points

    February 1, 2019 - If you want to impress a Somm with a bottle of wine, bring a Grand Cru Gamay. I hate using the term Beaujolais. It gives a lot of people the lesser impression of Beaujolais Nouveau which; equates to the impression left by Blue Nun in the 70’s/early 80’s and Yellow Tail in and around 2000.

    This is one of my favorite producers of Gamay, a member of the “Gang of Four”; Lapierre, Thevenet, Foillard & Breton. There is a fifth honoree member to the “Gang of Four”, Yvon Metras, who I enjoy equally. If you want to finally appreciate this varietal, look for one of these producers from Morgan or Fleurie.

    The nose reveals; dark cherries, blackberries, dark plum, blood orange, stewed plum, baked strawberries, blueberry hues, spearmint, granitic minerals/soil, dark berry cola, orange peel, thyme, rich forest floor, touch of cinnamon, very light caramel, dark chocolate, Indian spices, berry bubblegum, touch of band-aid, steeped fruit teas, limestone minerals, a whiff of black pepper, dark red, purple fresh flowers with shades of violets.

    The body is full, rich and guides over the palate. It shows some tannins. The structure & tension are still big. The length and balance are at the beginnings of truly rounding into butterfly form. Still will benefit from 5 plus years in bottle. Bright red florals are far more pronounced on the palate. Ripe/bright; dark, tart, cherries, blackberries, dark plum, stewed plum, baked strawberries, dry raisins, half baked rhubarb with lovely blueberry hues. Spearmint, tree sap, granitic minerals/soil pressed in to the palate, dark berry cola, thyme, rich forest floor, touch of cinnamon, very light caramel, dark chocolate, Indian spices, berry bubblegum, touch of band-aid, steeped fruit teas, limestone minerals, hints of black pepper, dark red, purple fresh flowers with shades of violets. The acidity is like a warm summer rain shower. The long, rich, ripe, well balanced, elegant finish is nicely persistent for minutes.
