Domaine M. Lapierre - Villié-Morgon
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 results are wines of very pure fruit aromas and bright flavors, a wine that is slightly drier and a bit less alcoholic. The Lapierre wines are fruity and refreshing, yet more substantial and structured, with the ability to age. 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.
