Snag some Lapierre Beaujolais while it’s still on the shelf! Lapierre is one of the most iconic Beaujolais producers, and their wines continue to be quite possibly the most sought after year upon year. And we know why! Because the wines are friggin ‘delish!
Here’s the Lapierre story if you are unfamiliar…
Marcel Lapierre took over the family domaine from his father in 1973, and in 1981 he banded together with Foillard, Thevenet, and Breton to lead positive change in Beaujolais. Sadly, the 2010 vintage was Marcel’s last. He passed away at the end of the harvest—a poetic farewell for a man that forever changed Beaujolais. His son Mathieu and daughter Camille confidently continue the great work that their father pioneered and have introduced biodynamic vineyard practices and ensuring that Marcel’s legacy lives on.
This year we are thrilled to have their coveted Morgon and “Le Beaujolais”, brand new wine in the Lapierre lineup, which is a selection of declassified Morgon along with fruit from granitic parcels just outside the cru boundaries. Like the domaine’s legendary Morgon, it is whole-cluster fermented with native yeasts and bottled unfiltered with very little sulfur.
Morgon 2021 $44
Le Beaujolais 2021 $36
