2007 Cuvèe Marcel Lapierre Morgon Vieilles Vignes!

(Plowing on the Cote du Py)

Over the last thirty years, the work of Marcel Lapierre has been an inspiration to those seeking more natural methods of winemaking. It was in 1981, under the influence of Jules Chauvet, that Marcel took the family estate back, or forward, to organic methods in the vineyard and vinifications with wild yeasts and without sulfur-dioxide. Lapierre's wines are remarkably elegant, with great aromatic complexity and a silky balance on the palate. In most vintages they age beautifully, becoming more Burgundian with time. "At the opposite of the technical wines, our philosophy is to offer to our customers wines which express their year and their origin" say the Lapierres on their web-site. 2007 was a somewhat difficult year for the vigneron in the Beaujolais, but a sunny, cool September enabled the best growers (such as Lapierre, Jean Foillard, Georges Descombes, Alain Coudert and others) to make great wines. The current offering is a special cuvèe by the Lapierres which has rarely been available in the US and has been made only in the best vintages. From one-hundred year-old vines, mostly on the Cote de Py, the Cuvèe Marcel Lapierre Morgon Vieilles Vignes is an extraordinary Beaujolais that belongs in the cellar of every serious wine-lover. We are offering it at a very low net price to encourage as many people as possible to try this unique wine - in fact, the best wines of the Beaujolais, made in this natural style, are among the most delicious and reasonably priced wines in the world!
