"A brand new wine in the Lapierre lineup, 'Le Beaujolais' is a selection of declassified Morgon along with fruit from granitic parcels just outside the cru boundaries. Like the domaine’s legendary Morgon, it is whole-cluster fermented with native yeasts and bottled unfiltered with very little sulfur.
While it represents a more easygoing and immediate expression of Gamay meant for earlier drinking, do not mistake it for a petit vin of little consequence: it has easily enough depth and class to fool you into thinking you are drinking a much fancier and more expensive cru Beaujolais. A sort of mini-Morgon, 'Le Beaujolais' is sweetly perfumed of ripe cherries and turned earth, backed by a vibrant freshness and silky, caressing tannins. Best of all, it exhibits the pleasure factor we expect from every bottle bearing the Lapierre label."

Mathieu Lapierre follows in his famous father's footsteps to create one of the greatest cru Beaujolais in all of France. It's more than delicious; it's liquid joy. The 2020 vintage rated 94 points by James Suckling and we are sure the 2021 is just as goo...
The AOC "Beaujolais Villages" brings together 38 villages of the region producing lip-smacking red, white and rosé wines. Trénel's Beaujolais Villages is produced in the area next to the villages of Perréon and Clochemerle. The parcels with sandy-loam and granitic soils are south and east oriented.
The regional appellation "Beaujolais" was recognized in 1937 and is the most extensive of the region. It produces fresh and fruity wines, perfect for the first days of summer. Trénel's Beaujolais Cuvée Rochebonne is produced on the east of the "Pierres Dorées" area, on three parcels east oriented and facing the Mont Blanc. They’re located in the village of Lucenay and are particularly ancient: the older one has been planted in 1922. The soil is very clayey and gives roundness and structure to the wine.
