This producer just does not disappoint. Whether the vintage is good or bad you can count on Mr. Lapierre to come through. This is the 3rd straight vintage that I have scored his Beaujolais above 90 points and among the best made in the region. Some past notes:
2000 Lapierre Beaujolais Morgon- The best Beaujolais I've ever had.
2001 Lapierre Beaujolais Morgon- Excellent effort in this poor vintage.
If you want to taste a wine the way it probably tasted 50-75 years ago, seek out this wine. No fining or filtration, organic farming, hand picking, low yields, old vines, natural yeasts, no suphur or acidification. This is just a fresh fruity wine. No bubble gum notes like many Beaujolais. Perfect if slightly chilled in the Summer or an excellent match with food. Light to medium bodied with red berry and nutty notes. 90-91 points.
