Gamay from 60-year-old vines grown on granitic and sandy soils, facing southwest. Living soils, ploughed and worked by hand without chemistry or weedkillers. Grapes harvested by hand, and handled with respect to preserve the indigenous yeasts. Gentle vinification, 100% destemmed, then maceration for 2 months in 400-litre amphorae. Maturation for 10 months in vats. No filtration. 1 g/hl of sulphur at bottling, which is to say almost nothing. Certified organic.

Jean-Claude Lapalu

Jean-Claude Lapalu is a vigneron who works in harmony with nature, situated on the slopes of Brouilly since 1996. His 9-hectare estate is certified organic, even if he does not mark this on his labels. He also bottles his wines with next to no sulphur – just 1 g/hl. It would be easy to imagine then that some oenophiles might dismiss him as lazy tree hugger, and yet for some time now...
