Domaine Lapierre

MORGON | JOULIENAS
*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 Lapierre
Our ideal is to make wine from 100% grape juice

The legacy of a man that forever changed our perception of Beaujolais lives on.
With Marcel LaPierre passing in 2010, his spouse Marie LaPierre and their son Mathieu are confidently pursuing the great work pioneered.

Marcel Lapierre† the Pope of Beaujolais, as is also known, took over the family domaine from his father in 1973, he was on the road to becoming a legend. In 1981, his path would be forever changed by Jules Chauvet, a man whom many now call his spiritual godfather – calling for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification: starting with old vines, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfur dioxide or none at all and no chaptalization.
