Jean Claude Lapalu Cote de Brouilly 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Jean-Claude Lapalu assumed control of just under 30 acres of Gamay from his father in 1996, and made his first commercial wines in 2000. His eight parcels of east and southeast facing vines are scattered from Mont Brouilly south through the rolling hills of Odenas and his hometown of Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne. Jean-Claude’s most significant early influence came from the writings of Jules Chauvet, France’s Father of Natural Winemaking. Like his bon copain Matthieu Barret in Cornas (Domaine du Coulet), Jean-Claude is committed to a strict biodynamic regimen. The domaine received its organic certification from Ecocert with the 2010 vintage and Jean-Claude is in the process of gaining the Biodyvin seal of approval. Jean-Claude produces small lots of six distinct Gamays, each expressing different aspects of the Haut-Beaujolais’ diverse geology. Domaine Lapalu made its debut in La Revue du Vin’s annual Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France (Best Wines of France) in 2009. La Revue’s tasting panel writes, “We were seduced by the quality of his wines…We salute the pursuit of maturity and concentration, which inevitably requires effort in limiting yields and taking risks in pushing the date of harvest (translation).” -Importer
