Eau Forte - 2020 - Jean Claude Lapalu

Domaine 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.

Gamay from 45-year-old vines, grown organically and planted on granitic soils, at the vineyard site Les Quatre Croix. Manual harvest at maturity and natural vinification, without inputs. Carbonic maceration of the whole bunches, soft pressing, fermentations and aging for seven months in barrels for that have seen several wines. Unfiltered, just a pinch 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...
