Jean-Claude Lapalu began his domaine in 1996. Previously, his family had been grape growers selling to the cooperative. He made his first commercial wines in 2000. Altogether, he has Read More...
12 hectares of vines in Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne, Brouilly, most of which are old (60–80 years), and which are farmed organically. Lapalu is working biodynamically, but is not yet certified.

Winemaking is natural, in that no sulfur dioxide is used until the bottling stage. These are truly remarkable expressions of Beaujolais.

slopes from a single proprietor (whose entire holdings, in fact, Aviron has vinified since 2000). Fresh cherry shadowed by kirsch and laced with piquancy of its pits receives an alluring bouquet of iris and mouthwatering lick of salt add to the appeal of a wine whose mid-palate promise of juiciness and vibrancy is slightly perturbed by a faint hint of caramelized resin from barrel. Enjoy it through 2016 – and revisit it if possible in 2014. It wasn’t bottled until October, and Aviron insists it needs time in bottle to slough-off the effects of both barrel and bottling."

Wine of the Week October 13, 2012|By S. Irene Virbila | Los Angeles Times
This is the latest from the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly in Beaujolais built in the 15th century. Read More...
But that wouldn't mean anything if the wine weren't so well made and delicious. Château Thivin, still run by the Geoffray family, who purchased the estate at the end of the 19th century, has vineyards planted with mostly 50-year-old Gamay vines, one reason these wines have such character.

That explosive, floral Fleurie character emerges from an intense, regal, tannic, Moulin-à-Vent chassis. It is loaded with flavor and has an intense palate feel." (Kermit Lynch)

signaling one of those numerous instances in his oeuvre where notes from barrel strike me as interfering with the pleasure otherwise derivable from ripe, pure fruit allied to mineral nuance. Unfortunately, a slight drying note in the finish must also be lain at the door of the cooper. That having been noted, there is certainly much to like here, from an expansive and sweetly ripe palate, through high-toned notes of almond extract and maraschino that mingle with the aforementioned oak-induced overtones, to a sustained, salt- and crushed stone-accented if faintly rough and only modestly juicy finish."

of a long, illustrious past. The remarkably old vines form one single, undivided vineyard circling the estate, and benefit from optimal soil and microclimate conditions. South-southeast hillside exposure to the sun allows the grapes to attain perfect ripening before they are harvested. This wine displays a sumptuous deep red color. its intense, complex nose offers an array of fruits, from peach to raspberry and black currant, with a subtle touch of cinnamon. Ample structure and excellent balance will allow this wine to age in bottle quite gracefully." WJDEUTSCH.COM

fruit vivacity and incorporating an abundance of fine tannin, which as de Castelnau acknowledges reflects an emphasis on pigeage that was especially pronounced with this cuvee. Smoked meat, peat, and crushed stone add depth and this finishes with impressive persistence, even if a touch of tannin seems, for now, to have the last word. I suspect this will be worth following for 4-6 years but would like to revisit it a year from now."

"Little would we know that when Marcel Lapierre took over the family domaine from his father in 1973, he was on the road to becoming a legend. In 1981, his path would be forever changed Read More...
by Jules Chauvet, a man whom many now call his spiritual godfather. Chauvet was a winemaker, a researcher, a chemist, and a viticultural prophet. It was he who, upon the advent of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in the 1950s, first spoke out for “natural wine,” harkening back to the traditional methods of the Beaujolais. Joined by local vignerons Guy Breton, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Jean Foillard, Marcel spearheaded a group that soon took up the torch of this movement. Kermit dubbed this clan the Gang of Four, and the name has stuck ever since. These rebels called for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification: starting with old vines, never using synthetic herbicides or pesticides, harvesting late, rigorously sorting to remove all but the healthiest grapes, adding minimal doses of sulfur dioxide or none at all, and disdaining chapitalization. Marcel was recently joined by his son Mathieu, and together they took the natural wine philosophy one step further, following organic and biodynamic vineyard practices. The end of the 2010 vintage was Marcel’s last. He passed away at the end of the harvest—a poetic farewell for a man that forever changed our perception of Beaujolais. Mathieu continues the great work that his father pioneered with confidence, albeit on his own.

The methods at Lapierre are just as revolutionary as they are traditional; the detail and precision with which they work is striking and entirely different from the mass-produced majority of Beaujolais on the market today. Decomposed granite comprises most of their eleven hectares, and the vines are an average of 45 years of age. Grapes are picked at the last possible moment to obtain the ripest fruit, which is a trademark of the estate style. The Lapierres age their wines on fine lees for at least nine months in oak foudres and fûts ranging from three to thirteen years old. These wines are the essence of Morgon: bright, fleshy fruit with a palatable joie de vivre that was undoubtedly inherited from their creator. In the words of KLWM salesperson Sam Imel, “They are meant to be devoured.” " Kermitlynch.com
