About this winery

David Schildknecht of the Wine Advocate implores consumers to drink more Beaujolais calling it a "happy hunting ground for jaded or bargain-seeking wine lovers" continuing a trend that has brought much greater exposure to the region over the past few vintages. We are thrilled to again offer one of the region's most exciting producers Domaine Mathieu and Camille Lapierre. Long-time followers will note change in name from Domaine M. Lapierre to Mathieu and Camille. Sadly Marcel passed away in...

Notes about product

In the heart of Beaujolais and the Morgon 'Cru' The domaine's vines, cultivated organically since 1981, are an average age of 60 years old. They spread over 13 hectares in Villié-Morgon area, 2 of which are in the Cote de Py. The cultural techniques put to work help preserve the soil's biology and help the vines take root deeply. They then absorb the oligo-elements necessary for the individuality and flavour of the 'cru'.

Winemaking notes

A genuine expression of terroir, this natural wine is a 100% pure grape wine. From the vineyard to the cellar, it has been guided and developed without any chemical additives. Natural wines are alive with subtle characters and aromas. More than an organic wine, a natural wine is the guarantee that the vines have been grown organically and the juice is free of synthetic products.

Tasting notes

Bright fruit aromas of raspberries, cherries and strawberries, this definitely smells like fresh Gamay juice! Soft and creamy on the palate, mild tannins and minerality which lend itself to a very smooth texture. A pleasant, long finish which doesn’t seem to tire, it always makes you come back for another sip.

September 2020

ots of red and black bramble fruit on the nose with flowers, wet earth, old vine, moss and citrus peel, following through to a medium-to full-bodied palate with light, round tannins and a bright, vivid finish. It develops beautifully in the glass giving more and more purity of fruit and creamy round tannins. Low sulfur. From one of the masters of Beaujolais.
