Domaine Jean-Claude Lapalu

Eau Forte - 2019 - Jean Claude Lapalu

A nose of red berries and floral notes. On the palate, the texture is magical, fine and subtle. An enormous success, the name Eau Forte comes from the fact that this wine is very (perhaps too) easy to drink – a gulpable glouglou cuvée... One glass calls for another, guaranteed.

From Gamay grown on granitic soils. The 45-year-old vines are planted at the vineyard site Les Quatre Croix. Soils that he keeps alive by scorning chemistry and weedkillers and ploughing his vineyard instead. Manual harvesting, respect for the grape to preserve the indigenous yeasts. Natural vinification, carbonic maceration of 100% whole bunches, maturation and alcoholic fermentation in barrels for 7 months. No filtration, 1 g/hl of sulphur at bottling. Wine not presented to labelling authorities and intentionally classified as Vin de France.

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...
