Gamay Time – Raisins Gaulois 2014

While I definitely don’t need a reason to sip Gamay, the recent warm weather in Sonoma is making it even easier to reach for a light-bodied red.  My house red for this summer (and for many of the past few summers) is Marcel Lapierre Raisins Gaulois.  This 100% Gamay comes from organically farmed, young vines in Morgon and Beaujolais.  There is as little intervention as possible in the winemaking process which allows this wine to be a pure expression of the Gamay grape.

Raisins Gaulois pours a bright ruby color in the glass and offers aromas of jubilant, red fruit. In each sip, there are tastes of tangy raspberries, cranberries, and red cherries followed with a juicy finish.  Refreshing, lively, and delicious!  Best enjoyed slightly chilled. (12% alcohol, $13.99)

  1. I really enough this Gamay. It was part of my wine club from Kermit Lynch. And to be honest when I saw I was upset, but after I opened and sipped the wine, was a nice surprise. Fruity and simplicity. All what you need from a Gamay.
