In 1973, Marcel Lapierre begins again the family business composed then by 7 hectares with the customers of his grand father with whom he is still working today. It is from 1981, under the impulse of Jules Chauvet, well-known researcher at the University of California that Marcel Lapierre decided to vinify without SO2 and additional yeasts and to cultivate in a bio dynamic way, without weed killers and chemical fertilizers.
over two days- on day one, it was pretty shy, but very elegant. Day tow, it opened to reveal a lovely crystalline texture that carried pure strawberry fruit- terrific.
I had the 2005 and it was extremely smooth and light...very delicious. Very fruity...It went well with the chicken. The restaurant that I went to had described it as a robust, full bodied wine but I found it to be quite the opposite. Great as a wine for the beginning of dinner but I would choose to have something heavier with a steak for example...but overall...very tasty!
