Gamay focus 20, Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2014 'N'


This is one of the most famous of all Beaujolais. It’s from the estate of the late Marcel Lapierre, now run by his son Matthieu, who has now been involved for over 10 years, and his daughter Camille. Lapierre  have 13 hectares in Villie-Morgon, farmed organically. They were pioneers of natural Beaujolais, and the only addition is some sulfur dioxide at bottling in a portion of the production. This, labelled ‘N’ on the back, is bottled without even this addition.


Domaine M Lapierre Morgon 2014 Beaujolais, France
Aromatic, slightly meaty, vivid raspberry fruit is the dominant theme here, with lovely freshness to the palate. It’s pretty and yet a bit rustic with nice grippy structure. So pretty and detailed with a wild side, but also lovely fruit. 93/100
