Jean-Claude Lapalu Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2018

$19.98

Jean-Claude Lapalu is based in the southern Cru of Brouilly where his family has farmed for generations. Jean-Claude has been farming his land organically for decades, certified in 2010, and approaches his work in the cellar with a light touch preferring native yeasts and sparse additions of sulfur.andnbsp; The 2018 Beaujolais-Village is astonishingly delicious given its modest price tag.andnbsp; While it may not have the staying power of a Cru Beaujolais the lush texture and opulent fruit of the wine keep drawing us back to the bottle. Classic Beaujolais from a wonderful vintage.

Entry-level cuvée by one of the great artisans of natural wine in Beaujolais. Not as complex and long on the palate as his two admirables Brouilly, or Eau-Vive; but for its price ... It is a beautiful gourmet bottle with this explosive fresh floral bouquet on the nose (Lily, Rose, Iris, Peony). The mouth is sparkling, bringing a very greedy crunchy fruitiness. To drink in its youth. A lot of pleasure Cuvée d’entrée de gamme par l’un des grands artisans du vin nature en Beaujolais. Pas aussi complexe et long en bouche que ses deux admirables Brouilly, ou Eau-Vive; mais pour son prix... C’est une belle bouteille gourmande avec ce bouquet floral frais explosif au nez (Lys, Rose, Iris, Pivoine). La bouche est perlante, apportant un fruité croquant très gourmand. A boire sur sa jeunesse. Beaucoup de plaisir.

For a villages, packs some serious wallop, like a bad ol Cru. So for about 17/18$ you get a Cru Bojo like, very forward leaning, sharply delineated, gorgeously strawberry & raspberry fruited Villages. Decent concentration. Some Brett in there too

Delicious natural wine with a reduced sulfur content: aromatic explosion of floral flavors: peony, rose, violet. Lots of fruit (red and black) and freshness in a round and fresh wine. A real treat
