Marcel Lapierre 'Le Beaujolais'
WINE TYPE: Red
After Marcel Lapierre's passing in 2010, his son Mathieu assumed the reigns, and with huge shoes to fill, picked up where his father left off. By then the Lapierre wines had achieved mythical status all over the globe. His sister Camille has since joined him as they carry on the family tradition of natural winemaking in the village of Morgon.
Hand harvested fruit from 70 year old vines produces some of the most prized gamay in the world. Herbal aromatics with cherry Jolly Rancher candy, fresh red cherries and raspberries with a touch of white pepper. The palate is clean and pure with delicious acidity.
