Marcel Lapierre

Founded at the beginning of the century, the family enterprise has been handed down through the family for more than three generations. Sitting in the heart of the Beaujolais vineyards its flagship wine comes from the Morgon Cru. Since his return to the domaine in January 2005, Mathieu Lapierre has encouraged the crafting of natural wines, first initiated by his ancestors, as part of the focus on authenticity and expressing their terroir.

The domaine's vines, cultivated organically since 1981, are an average age of 60 years old and spread over 13 hectares in the Villie-Morgon area, two of which are in the Cote de Py. The organic techniques used in the vineyard help preserve the soil’s biodiversity, while encouraging roots to go deeper, where they absorb the flavours and characteristics of this unique Cru.
