|Availability:||In stock (14)|
A natural wine haven for those searching for wines made free of additives. At Domaine Lapierre we cultivate our vines organically and ferment our wines without any additives. The estate was created in 1909 and now covers 18 hectares (nearly 45 acres) planted with the grape gamay noir à jus blanc, mainly in the Morgon appellation with several plots within the Beaujolais appellation. At the domaine we believe excellence depends on four essential elements: people, soil, climate and grape variety.
A brand new wine in the Lapierre lineup, “Le Beaujolais” is a selection of declassified Morgon along with fruit from granitic parcels just outside the cru boundaries. Like the domaine’s legendary Morgon, it is whole-cluster fermented with native yeasts and bottled unfiltered with very little sulfur.
"While it represents a more easygoing and immediate expression of Gamay meant for earlier drinking, do not mistake it for a petit vin of little consequence: it has easily enough depth and class to fool you into thinking you are drinking a much fancier and more expensive cru Beaujolais. A sort of mini-Morgon, “Le Beaujolais” is sweetly perfumed of ripe cherries and turned earth, backed by a vibrant freshness and silky, caressing tannins. Best of all, it exhibits the pleasure factor we expect from every bottle bearing the Lapierre label."
