The name Marcel Lapierre has become legendary and is held sacrosanct in natural wine circles. Marcel’s father founded the domaine and was one of the first to bottle his own wine in the area, already showing a pioneering spirit.Marcel took over in 1973 and in 1981 under the influence of researcher and chemist Jules Chauvet, he and the infamous gang (including Jean-Claude ‘Le Chat’ Chanudet) eschewed the ubiquitous chemicals, went back to traditional and artisanal methods and first spoke out for natural wine triggering a revolution still underway. The name Marcel Lapierre has become legendary and is held sacrosanct in natural wine circles. Marcel’s father founded the domaine and was one of the first to bottle his own wine in the area, already showing a pioneering spirit.

Following Marcel’s passing in 2010, Mathieu and Camille have carried forward their father’s outsized legacy with determination, dedication and passion. The wines from this iconic domaine keep getting better reaching an extra level of finesse unseen before.

A finely sculpted wine here, with a midraspberry colour, delicately extracted, and beautifully pure old viney fruit, enhanced by ten months ageing in casks from Burgundy. No sulphur was used during the élevage, just a little added at bottling.
