Gamay from vines grown organically on volcanic soils known as the Pierre Bleue de Brouilly (blue stone of Brouilly), facing north. Living soils, ploughed and worked by hand without chemistry or weedkillers. Grapes harvested by hand, and handled with respect to preserve the indigenous yeasts. Natural vinification, carbonic maceration for about 10 days with 80% of whole bunches and 20% destemmed. Fermentation and aging in barrels that have seen several wines, for 10 months. Unfiltered, and just a tiny dose of added sulphur at bottling.

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...
