Marcel Lapierre Morgon
2021 Marcel Lapierre Morgon...$37.99
One of the best Morgon wines each year. A store favorite each time we get in our allocation.
Lapierre is considered by many to be the father of Natural Wines.
A genuine expression of a “terroir”, natural wine is a 100% pure grape wine, from the vineyard to the cellar it has been guided and developed without any chemical additives. Compared with so called 'technological' wines, natural wines are more alive with subtle characters and aromas.
More than an organic wine, that only certifies that the grapes have been grown organically, a natural wine is the guarantee that the vines have been grown organically and the juice has been elaborated free synthetic products.
