"The 2018 Beaujolais-Villages Vieilles Vignes is showing superbly, bursting with aromas of cherries, blackberries, dried flowers and carnal nuances. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and ample, with an open-knit, succulent profile and a flavorful, sapid finish.

"The 2018 Beaujolais-Villages Vieilles Vignes is showing superbly, bursting with aromas of cherries, blackberries, dried flowers and carnal nuances. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and ample, with an open-knit, succulent profile and a flavorful, sapid finish. Ripe but nicely balanced, it's already drinking well...today, of course, Lapalu is an icon in the natural wine movement, so it's interesting to reflect on how far he has come since his tentative beginnings. His nine hectares are farmed organically and biodynamically, and vinification is carried out with little or no sulfur dioxide, generally with strict carbonic maceration, though the peculiarities of his various cuvées are described in more detail in the accompanying notes. Wines bearing Lapalu's label share one characteristic, however: they're irresistibly delicious. Today, he numbers among Beaujolais's finest producers, and I enjoy each visit I pay to his small domaine immensely."~William Kelley
