Beaujolais Nouveau 2023, Gamay from vines grown organically and planted on granitic soils. Living soils, ploughed and worked without chemistry or weedkillers. The grapes are harvested by hand, and handled with respect in order to preserve the indigenous yeasts. Natural vinification, without inputs: carbonic maceration of the wholes bunches, short aging in vats (this is a primeur wine after all!). Bottled without filtration or added sulfur.
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...All wines
