We met friends for dinner last night in Peoria Illinois USA. There was a wine listed as "Morgon, 2007" so we took a chance on it - it turned out to be Marcel Lapierre Cuvee Mathieu. It was a treat. We drank to Marcel's memory, Mathieu's career.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of Marcel Lapierre. I had the pleasure of picking grapes at his vinard in 1977. The generosity and kindness that Marcel and your whole family showed me was profound. I always felt welcome and a part of the team. Even though I was not very good at picking the grapes Marcel always was encouraging and positive. His caring attitude to me and all of the hired help is something I have strived to copy with the people I work with and to those who work for me.
I am glad that I had the chance to know him.

I too am saddened at the loss of Marcel Lapierre. I have been consuming his wines over many years with great pleasure. All of his variants of Morgon have been great age worthy examples of beaujolais. R.I.P.
