Red Wine by Marcel Lapierre from Beaujolais, France – regions. This cuvee takes the Vin de France appellation, because the Beaujolais’ governing body decided to do away with the Vin de Pays designation in Beaujolais, leaving only the appellations and Vin de France. The wine is still almost all from the cru of Morgon, with a little bit of A.O.C. Beaujolais as well. Bottled just after a winter settling (in screwcap, no less!), this wine is pure, unadulterated pleasure. If you’ve got a crowd (and two is a crown in thise case), one bottle won’t be enough.
