About the Wine:
This is a deep ruby-colored wine that combines aromas of violet flowers, raspberries and spices.. It shows an impressive structure and also a good concentration of fruit on the palate. This is an age worthy Beaujolais that could be put aside for a few years.

Production area/appellation: Beaujolais Julienas A.O.C
This wine is grown on the Côte de Bessay, a single parcel of 6 acres north and above of the Village of Julienas at the border of the St Amour appelation.

A wine produced by Mathieu Lapierre and his cousin Christophe Pacalet. Mathieu and Christophe each vinify their own cuvée of Juliénas and after malolactic fermentation they blend equal parts of each of their cuvées. After bottling, the wine is split evenly between the two vignerons.

Actually half the parcel is classified as St Amour Aoc and the other half as Julienas Aoc. Mathieu Lapierre holds a long contract with the vineyard owner and together with his cousin, Christophe Pacalet, they works the parcel and vinifies the wine following the same principles of fermentation without sulfites originally implemented by their father and uncle, Marcel Lapierre. The forty years old vines are grown on a deep blue granitic soil fully exposed south, south-east. The age of these vines brings concentration and structure to the wine.

Only indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation and they require an higher temperature to work properly.
