Food Pairings for Marcel Lapierre Morgon
External Reviews for Marcel Lapierre Morgon
Marcel produces a small quantity of this special cuvee, but so far only in certain vintages. It is from his oldest vines mostly from the Cote du Py, aged longer, & released later than the domaine's flagship Morgon bottling. This is a more serious, more structured, more intense expression of the Morgon terroir. It needs a few years in the bottle or an hour in a decanter to show it's complexity.
In 1973, Marcel Lapierre restarted the family business composed then by 7 hectares with the customers of his grand father with whom he is still working today. From 1981, under the impulse of Jules Chauvet, a well-known researcher at the University of California, Marcel Lapierre decided to vinify without SO2 and additional yeasts and to cultivate in a bio dynamic way, without weed killers and chemical fertilizers. Massively ripe, dense, dark fruits can be discerned in this wine's sur-maturite-laced nose. It is chewy, deep, dense, broad, and mouth-coating. Blackberries, plums, and black cherries are intertwined with flavors reminiscent of raw meat in this concentrated and powerful wine. Its fruit-packed and ripe tannin-filled, extensive finish auger a stupendous future for this Beaujolais.
<p>The Domaine Laiperres’s Villie-Morgon vineyard is farmed without artificial herbicides or fertilizers, producing all-natural wines. The 2009 Marcel Lapierre Morgon is a fresh-tasting wine packed with rich red fruit flavors. Tannins are rich and round.</p>
