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.
Aromas of red fruits such as cherries and strawberries with a touch of florality and a hint of cassis. The palate is velvety and layered, medium to full-bodied, supple and flavourful wine with a glou glou factor.
