Domaine Marcel Lapierre
Morgon Cuvée Marcel Lapierre - 2018 - Mathieu Lapierre - Magnum
A cult wine! A rare cuvée, a powerful Gamay, gushing with fruit and spice. A concentrated, racy palate with a long finish. You’ll need to be a little patient and let this age in the cellar for a bit.

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.
