Jean Claude Lapalu
Brouilly Cuvee des Fous 2013

Sorry, this item is no longer available

Jean Claude’s bold and natural wine making process has been one of the big driving forces behind the seeming renaissance of Beaujolais in certain areas and for certain people, and its wines like this magnificent ‘Cuvee des Fous’ that are the main contributers. 100% destemmed and made from vines that are over 100 years old, this is the most introspective and intriguing bouquet on the nose of his range. Blackberry, briary fruit are accompanied by limestone and flinty notes. The medium bodied palate is laced with supple and smooth tannins, surrounded by a core of very dark and pure berry fruits. Its sublime, the balance of tension and release, weight and levity. This is one of the finest examples of Beaujolais from Brouilly you will come across.
