Lapierre is one of the standard-bearers of Beaujolais.
We'll keep this brief.
For us, there may be no producer in Beaujolais who succeeds in ripe vintages like Lapierre. In these vintages, Lapierre picks up more punch and an extra dimension of complexity, but not at the expense of levity or that granite-inflected minerality that makes drinking Lapierre so lovely. 2017 is such a vintage.
The 2017 vintage was less extreme than 2015 and 2009, but the vintage is a relatively ripe one. Lapierre's 2017 Morgon has an unusual amount of presence and depth while still being seriously gulpable.
For Lapierre fans, this is a vintage to buy mags. The combination of sheer drinkability and the promise of being able to age can't be denied.
Every vintage, we watch people stock up on Lapierre in a major way. For many wine buyers having a healthy supply of Lapierre is essential. I should warn you, though, our supply of magnums may very well not be able to cover all of the orders that we'll receive.
