Marcel Lapierre’s mentor, Jules Chauvet, is the man who in the 1950’s spoke out against chemical fertilization in the name of protecting “natural wine” and the traditional viticultural and winemaking methods of Beaujolais. Throughout his career, Marcel Lapierre and a small group of other vignerons and winemakers in the region, made it their mandate to maintain the viticultural and winemaking traditions of Beaujolais. These traditional practices valued old vines, no synthetic herbacides, pesticides, late harvesting, sorting grapes and using only the healthiest, minimal or no sulphur and zero chaptilization. Marcel once said, “Our ideal is to make wine from 100% grape juice.” Marcel passed away in 2010 and now his work is carried on by his talented son Mathieu.

Nobody’s wines taste like Marcel Lapierre’s. He is the source of a whole new school of winemaking, turning the hands of time back to wine the way Mother Nature envisioned it. Tasting it can change the way you taste wine. – Kermit Lynch

Tasting Notes

The wine is characterised by aromas of cherry, licorice and violet.


The 2020 vintage in Beaujolais, began with a mild and frost free spring.  The summer was hot summer and unusually dry, with few disturbances like hail or disease.  Broadly speaking, the 2020s are sinuous and inviting and Lapierre’s iconic Morgon shows how this great Beaujolais Crus combines ripeness with refreshing acidity and site-specificity.

Morgon is considered to be the most structured of the Beaujolais Cru. Lapierre’s Morgon is made from Gamay Noir from 70 year old vines. The wine is aged for 9 months in 216 L barrels and bottled unfiltered with minimal sulphur addition.
