"Just a superb Morgon" -
2015 Lapierre Morgon, Magnum Edition

Posted by Joe Salamone

For Lapierre fans, this is a vintage to buy mags.

2015 was a riper vintage in Beaujolais. Think of wines that are richer than the 2014s, but fresher than the 2009s. For many, 2015 is positioned to be one of the great Beaujolais vintages.

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 expensive of levity or that granite-inflected minerality that makes drinking Lapierre so lovely. It's worth checking out Neal Martin's notes below. He captures the wine very well.

The structure, concentration and elegance of the 2015 make it a vintage of Lapierre you'll want to stash in your cellar. And that's all the more reason to buy it in magnum.

2015 Lapierre Morgon Magnum

Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Morgon has a clean and vibrant bouquet with perfumed dark cherries, redcurrant, a touch of gravel and touches of rose petal. The palate is nicely structured, brimming over with energy. The acidity is very well judged, quite sturdy as Morgon should be, no hard edges here but just the background "hum" of tension from start to finish. This is just a superb Morgon from Mathieu and Camille Lapierre."
