The Raisins Gaulois is fun incarnate - drinking this wine offers indecent pleasure. You have to like a cheekily-monickered wine with a cartoon label of a geezer swallowing a bunch of grapes (evidently taking his wine in tablet form). Gummy Gamay, do not pass go, do not collect tannin, a redcurrant jam jamboree which just manages to steer clear of sweetness by virtue of a thwack of liquorice on the finish. You’re madder than Mad Jack McMad if you don’t serve this well chilled.
As recommended by Fiona Beckett, The Guardian, March 2013. "A perfect example [of a natural red wine] is Raisins Gaulois, a joyous, quaffable, beaujolais-like red from the Lapierre family, which cries out for a picnic or a plate of charcuterie."
Very helpful over the phone when I had a query on delivery. Very nice people to deal with. Would suggest adding the option to collect when ordering online.
