Mathieu Lapierre returned to the family estate in 2005. But behind the Domaine Lapierre was first his father Marcel, pope (with Jean Foillard) of natural wine in Beaujolais. Marcel Lapierre passed away in 2010, leaving behind Morgons which by then had taken on mythic status and, in the footsteps of Jules Chauvet, a philosophy of natural wine which earned him legions of followers.
