Marcel Lapierre Morgon Cuvee

$68.11

The late Marcel Lapierre was an icon to artisan producers of top-quality Beaujolais. Working his vineyards near Villié-Morgon, in the Cru Beaujolais appellation of Morgon, Marcel began employing techniques that at the time were considered radical: organic viticulture, natural yeasts, minimal or no use of sulfur dioxide, unfiltered bottling. This style of production is often referred to as “à l’ancien” or “in the old manner,” and today has become widespread among quality growers. The domaine is now run by Marcel’s son, Mathieu, who continues to work according to the ideals of his father and the traditions he created. He farms 15 hectares of 70 year old vines planted to granitic soils.

“100-year-old vines on the Côte du Py for 80%, and 20% from Douby. It will have had 9 months in barrel though without new wood. Bright lively purple with notably more depth. Fresh and fine with more tannins than the other cuvées, though the wood stays completely in the background as far as flavour profile is concerned.” – Jasper Morris
