M. & C. LAPIERRE Juliénas 2016

(Beaujolais, France) $29

For all the current distress in the world, it is still the season when we must find joy. Joy is imperative, for joy is renewal. I found myself wondering the other day if all wines give joy. And I decided they didn’t. Only certain wines have the rare ability to make us feel. This Juliénas is one of those wines. With its long, silky swaths of berries, spices, and minerals, it dances across the palate with what can only be described as joyousness.  And who couldn’t use a little bit more of that right now?
