"The irreplaceable and virtually irrepressible Marcel Lapierre succumbed to unrelenting melanoma just after the 2010 harvest was completed and will be sorely missed among us. His son Mathieu  who had been assuming an increasingly important role at the domaine in recent years  has admirably advanced their labors in this vintage, resulting in wines that display the levity and digestabilite as well as textural caress and subtle complexity that one has long associated with the crafts of this domaine. Lapierre picked from September 20 through the first week in October and achieved normal crop levels. Mathieu Lapierre might refine his fathers methods but it seems unlikely that he will deviate from them in fundamental ways, and he believes that "we in Beaujolais are in danger of losing our vinous identity" thanks in part to the ambitions of growers who take their inspiration and methods from the Cote dOr."

"Probably the most sought-after Beaujolais vintner working today, Marcel Lapierre works organically in the vineyard and uses very little sulfur in the cellar. The result is a wine that is both powerful and elegant, with an exceptionally pure fruit expression and marked minerality. Serious beyond its price point."

"Nobodys wines taste like Marcel Lapierres. He is the source of a whole new school of winemaking, turning the hands of time back to wine the way Mother Nature envisioned it. Tasting it can change the way you taste wine." ~Kermit Lynch
