Producer

Marcel Lapierre

Marcel took over his family domaine in 1973 but his true “father” in terms of his winemaking career was the now infamous Jules Chauvet. In 1981, Chauvet began teaching Marcel the traditional ways of winemaking that had persisted in Beaujolais for hundreds of years before modern viticulture arrived. Along with his friends and fellow vignerons Guy Breton, Jean Paul Thevenet, and Jean Foillard, the “Gang of Four” was formed, all following the guidance of Chauvet. Their methods were a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification of their forefathers, focusing on old vines, organic and biodynamic farming, late harvests, and rigorous sorting which resulted in grapes that had the potential to produce world class wines.

Region/Subregion

France

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of France to the wine world. With a rich history of wine production across virtually all of France over the last thousand years many of the grape species that are known for producing benchmark wines from all over the world had their beginnings in France. Over centuries vignerons refined their focus on what grapes thrived and transmitted a sense of place.
