A vibrant red that bursts with cherry and raspberry with subtle floral nuances. The palate backs up these notes adding just a hint of allspice giving away the age of the vines and perhaps a little tobacco smoke. A slightly tannic finish which is long yet youthful further emphasises the quality of this wine and the fruit from which it is made.
Organic, Vegan, No added sulfur
Jean-Claude Lapalu is a third generation winemaker but only began his own domaine in 1996. Previously, his family had been grape growers selling to the cooperative. He didn’t have a clear idea of the wines he wanted to make at that stage, only an idea of the wines he didn’t want to make. It took him 5 or 6 years to get rid of the additives and interventions he’d learned about at the wine school he attended in Charentay. Altogether, he has 12 hectares of vines in total, most of which are old (60–80 years), and which are farmed organically.
