This Morgon from Marcel Lapierre is a classical rendition of this emblematic producer, offering up a lovely bouquet of black cherry, plum, rich soil and wood smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and bright, with racy acids, fine but savory tannins and a tangy, lingering finish.
A natural wine haven for those searching for wines made free of additives. At Domaine Lapierre we cultivate our vines organically and ferment our wines without any additives. The estate was created in 1909 and now covers 18 hectares (nearly 45 acres) planted with the grape gamay noir à jus blanc, mainly in the Morgon appellation with several plots within the Beaujolais appellation. At the domaine we believe excellence depends on 4 essential elements: people, soil, climate and grape variety.
Beaujolais soils are often described as acidic and well draining. Gamay is perfectly suited to these conditions and thrives in the poor soils. The name “Morgon” is derived from the decomposition of the magmatic rocks. This crumbling rock helps to shape the character of the wine. The geological and pedological origins of the Beaujolais make the wine region completely unique to other vignoble in France.
