Marcel Lapierre is well established as a member of the heroic Gang of Four. These four biodynamic, natural-leaning producers (the others being Foillard, Thevenet, and Breton) have fought to turn around the fortunes of every winemaker in Beaujolais over the last twenty years as the region’s top wines have gone from jaw-dropping and underpriced to mid-priced village-level Côte d’Or. The late Marcel Lapierre famously championed organic farming, hand-harvesting ripe fruit, and a winemaking philosophy of “nothing added, nothing taken away” that has spread like wildfire to all corners of the wine world. Irresistibly delicious yet deeply complex and age-worthy, his Morgons silenced many a critic and quenched many a parched palate. Today, his children Mathieu and Camille proudly carry on the Lapierre tradition. A perfect initiation to the domaine’s wines, the Raisins Gaulois bottling is designed specifically for the purpose of drinking—not tasting, not spitting, but jolly, carefree quaffing. Although it consists of Gamay grown within the Morgon cru, the high yields from these young vines exceed the limit required to qualify for the Morgon appellation. As a result, this juicy red—loaded with bright, playful fruit—is low in alcohol and delightfully refreshing. It begs for a slight chill and to be served alongside charcuterie, cheeses, picnic fare, burritos, or just about anything. The Morgon cru bottlings themselves should need no introduction to any of you Gamay-lovers. The vintage’s signature is freshness and mineral character over the ripe fruit we have gotten in 2018 and 2019.
