Gamay from 50-70-year-old vines grown organically and planted on granitic soil, ploughed and worked by hand without chemistry or weedkillers. Manual harvest at maturity, the grapes are handled with respect to preserve the indigenous yeasts. Natural vinification, carbonic maceration of whole bunches for about 10 days, soft pressing, aging in vats for 6 months. Bottled at the Estate without fining or filtration, just a pinch of sulfur in order to protect the wine.

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...
