Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2017
Planted on these poor, acid soils, Gamay expresses notes of violets and aromas of black cherries. Morgon develops deeper notes after some years approaching its cousin Pinot.
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. These wines are the essence of Morgon: bright, fleshy fruit with a palatable joie de vivre that was undoubtedly inherited from their creator. Mathieu Lapierre follows in his famous father’s footsteps to create one of the greatest cru Beaujolais in all of France. It’s more than delicious; it’s liquid joy.
Super wild and attractive, ripe strawberry aromas, leading to a super juicy and deep-set impression. The palate carries a lithe, juicy and very energetic array of super expressive fruit and a hint of savory complexity, just starting on the finish.
