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.

Product notes

Cuvée Camille is made from 1 hectare of old vines with southwest exposure located in the acclaimed Côte du Py. The first vintage was made in 2013 to celebrate Camille joining her brother Mathieu in continuing their family legacy. It is also a nod to their grandfather also named Camille.

Production notes

With only 1.0540 hectares in production (cadastral number AX0084), Cuvée Camille comes from an old plot on the Côte du Py (with south-west exposure, in shallow soil). The grapes go through the same meticulous stages as their Morgon, except that the fermentation will be longer and done 100% in truncated wooden vats. This cuvée was born when Camille Lapierre (Marcel's daughter) returned to the estate, but it is also a nod to her grandfather Camille (Marcel's father).

March 2023

The 2021 Morgon Côte du Py Cuvée Camille offers a mixture of red and black fruit. This is interwoven with wonderful mineralité and tension. The palate is medium-bodied with finely-chiseled tannins. Very saline and certainly extremely precise, blessed with a poised and tensile finish. You can feel the tension in this nascent Morgon.
