Domaine M. Lapierre is one of the most legendary domains in Beaujolais. Marcel Lapierre was the grandmaster of natural Beaujolais. He inspired a generation of wine growers such as Jean Foillard and Georges Descombes among others. Today his son Mathieu manages the property (with organic certification) and preserves his father's style and philosophy. The vines, which are around 60 years old on average, produce fruit forward wines that are wonderfully silky. He follows biodynamic cultivation methods and his vinification process is very traditional (the whole grape undergoes carbonic semi-maceration in the Beaujolais style without the use of SO2). He is a master when it comes to the maturation process. With this exceptional Morgon terroir, Lapierre creates wines that boast immense fruit that are a beautiful example of a Beaujolais cru.
