Marcel Lapierre is one of the leading traditionalists in Beaujolais. Back around 1980, Lapierre began calling for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification: starting with old vines, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfur dioxide or none at all, and refusing both chaptalization and filtration. Along with Thevenet, Foillard, and Guy Breton, Lapierre is a member of what legendary importer Kermit Lynch calls The Gang of Four, the original traditional trailblazers of Beaujolais. 

 

The wines are rustic and raw, but have always possessed good energy and purity of fruit. The "Cuvée N", denoted by a tiny letter N on the bottom left of the bottle, is a "Sans Sufre" cuvée bottled without sulfur. These are a bit more volatile and wild, but they can be a peek at starkly non-interventionist winemaking styles. They are relatively difficult to source nowadays, and sell out quickly. Buy while you can.
