Raisins Gaulois Gamay, natural wine, organic fruit, lip smacking, fun red from acclaimed Beaujolais family. From the famous Lapierre estate, now run by Marcel’s son and daughter. This is superb fresh crunchy young Gamay, a wine that is ideal for summertime drinking with a picnic, or sat at the side of the road watching the bike race and munching some cheeses and salami with bread. It is fresh, vibrant and natural, and above all, fun to drink. The Gamay provides authentic Frenchness and little red fruits; carbonic maceration and low sulphur bring the wine alive and tingle on the tongue. Delicious stuff!

In 1973, Marcel Lapierre took over the family business which was started at the start of the century. Eight years later, under the guidance of Jules Chauvet, a renowned local winemaker, Marcel decided to vinify his wine without any added sulfur.  This was pretty revolutionary at the time.

Marcel met his future wife Marie when she came to the winery during the 1980 harvest. He was instantly charmed by her energy, passion and integrity. They began working side by side in 1982. In addition to supervising the harvest every year, Marie started to develop their customers throughout France, customers who shared their unique natural vision of viticulture and winemaking.

In 2010 Marcel sadly passed away but his vision and commitment to natural wine continues to influence people today.  Mathieu Lapierre, Marcel's eldest son began working at the domaine in 2004.  In 2013, he was joined by his sister, Camille. Both Mathieu and Camille currently co-own and operate the family winery alongside their mother Marie, and with the same commitment and dedication as their predecessors.

The wines of Chateau Cambon come from vineyards scattered between Morgon and Brouilly, with some special vines upwards of 80 years old.  In following Marcel's vision from the 1970s, the Lapierre estate continues to make wines that express the purity of Gamay and the special granitic terroir of the Beaujolais region.  All the wines are made fully in line with natural production methods and as well as being authentic and delicious, they still represent outstanding value for money.

    a simple wine but in a good way. Fruity, juicy, fresh and youthful. Drink now with a BBQ or some cured meat.. great value!

    Tis would be my house wine if I was a restaurant owner. It is just pure wine delight; upfront, juicy red fruit flavours. It’s not a wine to think about, just one to enjoy for pleasure. Cracking Beaujolais.

    This wine…. well, where do I start?! They say it’s good for those summer time bike race pavement picnics, but here I am, on a cold wet December eve in the big smoke (LDN) and boy is this bottle appropriate?! Gulpable, an understatement if ever I heard one! I’d pick this wine to give to an old friend or a recent lover. Would buy again. 5 stars.

    Had this for dinner with friends and everyone loved it.
    I’m not a connoisseur and don’t know the right words to describe wine, but this one was like grape juice, only not as sweet. It was perfect.

    This was such an easy to drink wine that I ended 2019 drinking it from the bottle, #rosstest style. Light but with a touch of grippy tannin, juicy and full and with a touch of forest fruits. Will be buying again.

    I ordered a few low sulphite wines, as I get really bad reactions with sinus headaches etc. so am unable to drink usually.

    This wine was by far my favourite, really flavoursome and light – very easy to drink. Not heavy and not at all bitter or dry. Will definitely be buying this for the foreseeable future!

    Another great everyday wine; I’ve enjoyed this one over several vintages, without the slightest disappointment

    3.0

    Unlike many of the other reviewers I found this fresh juicy wine too approachable, if that’s possible. It hasn’t any challenge. I like drinking it but a glass is enough for me then I want a proper grown up drink.

    Really lovely wine – delicious light easy drinking chilled on a hot day or with a meal at room temperature Recommend it.

    I would agree with the majority of the reviews. This is a delicious light summer fruits garden party crowd pleaser.

    Will be keep the rest of the case for just that.
