Rarely Seen Lapierre
2017 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Posted by Joe Salamone

Our allocation of Lapierre's Sans Soufre bottling is one of the most anticipated events.

Lapierre's Morgon is one of the most wildly delicious wines in existence. The Sans Soufre bottling takes it to another level. In the U.S. it's rarely encountered and tends to disappear from the market quickly.

We've made the comparison with the normal sulfured version a bunch of times over many vintages. Generally speaking, the Sans Soufre is more expressive, deeper and flaunts a more intense mineral impression.

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.

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.

Everyone knows the deal with Lapierre, so I'll keep this brief. I should warn you that quantities are limited. The Sans Soufre bottling is never in great supply, but 2017 was another short vintage in Beaujolais. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
