Marcel Lapierre helped launch the natural wine movement with his quest to produce delicious, highly drinkable Gamay without sulphur or chemicals. The estate has since set the standard for proper natural wine. The winemaking is now done by his son Mathieu & remains lively, fresh, and exuberant.
Marcel Lapierre is not any old winemaker. This man single handedly pioneered natural winemaking in his region, creating the benchmark in Beaujolais & inspiring a whole generation of winemakers along the way. “Cuvée Marcel” is a rich, powerful wine with integrated acidity & notes of dark fruit.
