Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2011

Beaujolais, France

$28.05

    My Review: This is what Gamay has best to offer and what the 10 crus of the Beaujolais also have best to offer. This biodynamic producers makes delicious and lush wines year after year. I had the 2010 and the 2011 and they are complex, but aerial and fun at the same time. Not the typical Beaujolais. You can drink now or wait 2-3 years. The father died recently, but the son is as skilled. A perfect wine for the fall and X-Mas time. Impossible (I declare that it is!) not to like this wine. The 2012 is available at the SAQ now. You can buy 750 ml or the magnum (my choice). Score: 94/100
