Tasting: Lapierre & Vieux Télégraphe

--
This is one of those tastings that I could only denigrate by adding fluffy language or fanciful turns of phrase. Lapierre & Domaine Vieux Télégraphe are benchmark producers in Beaujolais & Châteauneuf-du-Pape, respectively. Their wines are exquisite and elegant and definitely worth tasting.

An original member of the Gang of Four, Marcel Lapierre - along with Guy Breton, Jean-Paul Thévenet & Jean Foillard - spearheaded a movement to return to traditional grape growing & winemaking practices in Beaujolais. We're opening his Morgon tomorrow, a suave & complex red with sappy black cherry fruit & plush, velvety texture.

On the other side of Lyon from Beaujolais, planted into the sun-scorched hills of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Brunier brothers tend the legendary vineyards at Domaine Vieux Télégraphe. Télégramme is their more accessible release, produced from 20-year-old vines and marked by notes of spice cake, lavendar, & generous red fruit.
