Dom Lapalu Beaujolais Villages 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

With Jean-Claude Lapalu's wine you can detect the fists behind the fruit. This is one of the new crew of sternly-made rock steady cru Beaujolais: Grapes are hand-picked and sorted, loaded by conveyor to avoid damage, and given neither SO2 nor cultured yeasts during the fermentation. During 8-10 days maceration a wooden grill is used to enhance extraction. The wine stays at least a half year on its fine lees gaining power and complexity. This Beaujolais Villages smells intensely of blueberry, boysenberry, cassis, lavender, and mint; offers a soft feel and sappy richness yet practically explosively refreshing palate concentration; and finishes with invigorating salinity.
