The Lapierre 2011 Morgon Marcel Lapierre MMXI – an unfiltered but lightly sulfured June bottling from the estate’s best old vines – weighs in at 13.5% alcohol, roughly a whole point higher than its “regular” counterparts. Fresh and distilled plum and cherry inform a prominent nose and lush, expansive palate, with piquancy of pits and bitter-edged herbs serving for counterpoint; musky floral and animal notes for alluring intrigue; and mineral salts for mouthwatering savor. Suggestions of cinnamon basil and chewed honeysuckle further fascinate in the finish. This should be utterly fascinating to follow at least through 2020. Wine Advocate 93 (2011)

In the northern hills of Beaujolais lies the pastoral Villie-Morgan, one of the ten cru villages permitted to print its name on the bottle, and also considered home of one of the best wines in Beaujolais. An hour from Lyon, the second largest city in France, Villie-Morgan is a century away in atmosphere. It is also home to a group of groundbreaking and sometimes controversial winemakers know in the US as the Gang of Four. This group, informally spearheaded by Marcel Lapierre, strives to make wines as naturally as possible, in the vineyard and in the winery. Lapierre's vines average 40 years of age, and his grapes are always picked at the latest possible moment in order to obtain the ripest possible fruit. No pesticides or chemicals are used in the vineyards and no sulfur or yeast is added during fermentation. The resulting wines are pure and fruity, not overly alcoholic, and always a pleasure to drink.
