Domaine Lapierre

Domaine Lapierre

Lapierre is an inseparable name of viticulture in Beaujolais, and Morgon in particular. The history of the family took on its full scope at the end of the 70s, when Marcel Lapierre, a disciple of Jules Chauvet, turned to organic farming to produce natural wines. Even if the term then has no meaning and no market, but beyond making "without sulfur", a group of winegrowers chooses the nature path to better fight the standardized practices of the time, with great yeasting, sulfiting and chaptalization. Chanudet, Foillard, Metras, Descombes and Lapierre paved the way for what are now called natural wines. Marcel's children, Camille and Mathieu, perpetuate the Lapierre legend. The wines are vinified in almost the same way, namely without sulfur or almost without sulfur, indigenous yeasts, no chaptalization and carbonic macerations to preserve the identity of the Morgons of the Domaine: gourmet wines, dry, with fine tannins and diabolical drinkability, on cherry stone, raspberry and sweet spices.
