Item Description
"Jean-Claude Lapalu is one of Beaujolais' top producers, and an icon in the natural wine movement. This entry-level bottling is a top-tier old vine Beaujolais-Villages from a densely planted, early ripening sector. This super value is supple, succulent and a very pretty wine, with an elegant, bright, and pure varietal expression that bursts with aromas of cherries, blackberries, earth tones, and floral nuances. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and ample, with a delicious, savory finish. A remarkable expression of Beaujolais and an amazing value!"~Distributor Notes

"...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 cuvees 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, The Wine Advocate
