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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Feb-12
Bright ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of wild red berries, rhubarb and white pepper, with a sexy floral nuance and a hint of herbs. Juicy and focused, offering refreshingly bitter red fruit flavors and a darker note of licorice on the back end. Closes with firm, youthful grip and lingering licorice and bitter cherry qualities. Less opulent than the alluring 2009 version, displaying more structure and linear character.
