Item Description

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.
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 work the parcel and vinify 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, southeast. 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.
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.

Sporting a lush bouquet of raspberries and pomegranate with a pinch of fresh herbs, the Cousins project provides ripe acidity and elegant structure that will play well with everything the holiday has to offer. Juicy fruit flavors will dance tirelessly around your cornbread and potatoes, while serving as a booster-shot and supporting act for your turkey dinner. Don’t forget to pick one up for the leftovers, too!"
