Staff Pick Notes

Marcel Lapierre is known for his passionate and pioneering success advocating for what's become the natural wine movement, now seen the world over. His wines see little intervention in barrel (sulfate usage is kept to a minimum) and organic farming is strictly practiced. 2015 proved to be a big, brawny vintage for many wine makers in the Beaujolais appellation, and this Morgon was no exception. Smooth and muscular, the wine drinks like a Burgundy on steroids, with copious amounts of black cherry coating the palate. Unlike lighter, more acid driven vintages that benefit from serving at cellar temperature (55 degrees), the 2015 fully expresses its self at room temperature. This wine has enough structure and backbone to cellar for a decade but why wait - there's no reason not to enjoy it now.

Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
