Marcel Lapierre MorgonTabula Rasa Shop
Marcel Lapierre took over the family domaine from his father in 1973, he was on the road to becoming a legend. Marcel spearheaded a group that advocated for "natural wine" that came from old vines with no pesticides and minimal intervention. After his passing in 2012, Marcel's son Mathieu and daughter Camille confidently continue the great work that their father pioneered, now introducing biodynamic vineyard practices and ensuring that Marcel's legacy lives on.
The methods at Lapierre are just as revolutionary as they are traditional; the detail and precision with which they work is striking and entirely different from the mass-produced majority of Beaujolais on the market today.
Marcel's wines are the essence of Morgon: bright, fleshy fruit with a palatable joie de vivre that was undoubtedly inherited from their creator.
