TN: 2016 Marcel Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Camille (France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Morgon)

  • 2016 Marcel Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Camille - France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Morgon (2/8/2018)
    Juicy wild red berry fruit that's fresh and tangy...crushed raspberries, cherries, cranberry fruit...perfectly ripe, yet with a nice med bodied, see through transparency. Pretty flower florals, dried potpourri, spice cake, red licorice...there is a candied sweetness that balances well with the tart and tangy fruit, but not too sweet, as the crushed granite, rose bed earth tones, and fine tannins help keep in check. Refreshing and easy drinking, yet plenty to contemplate. A chill it and kill it wine! (93 pts.)

Lapierre seems to be very strong in 2016. Have you tried the Cuvee Marcel Lapierre btw and if so, is it worth the extra tariff over the base bottling?

Pardon my ignorance, but what does the "Camille" designation signify?

I agree with you Buzz, I drink Cru Beaujolais a lot now. The price is obviously attractive, but the wines can be really beautiful. Perfect with a roasted chicken, fish, even a salad.

+1 to everything said here. I don't drink much wine without food but if I do it is almost always Cru Bojo. Due to being so refreshing it is pretty much the only red I feel like drinking after doing sports and feeling all healthy. As for Alex's question Camille is a single parcel wine from Côte du Py.

In addition to the note below, it’s also the name of his sister and fellow winemaker so it’s possible she has more influence or is responsible for creating that particular cuvée.

Love Lapierre wines btw.

As noted Camille is Mathieu Lapierre's sister and runs the domaine with him. I believe this wine is a selection entirely from Cote du Py, whereas the straight Morgon includes wine from Py and elsewhere around the village.
