About Domaine Marcel Lapierre
From its eleven granitic hectares of vines (average age: 45 years), Lapierre makes deeply concentrated and unusually powerful Morgon that is considered by some to be the best in the village that boasts the greatest number of serious producers in Beaujolais.

(this is the no-sulfur cuvee): Vivid ruby. Intense, mineral-accented bouquet of redcurrant, raspberry, pungent herbs and rhubarb. Spicy red fruit flavors show very good intensity and pick up smokiness with air. Finishes tangy and long, with clinging notes of licorice and red fruit. This seems a little more open than the "S" version right now, and a bit more fruity.
