Jean-Claude Lapalu is revered for his commitment to naturally-farmed, naturally-produced Beaujolais in the southernmost Cru of Brouilly. 

9 hectares scattered from Mont Brouilly to Lapalu's home village of Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne, the "gateway to the Crus”, which is more influenced by the Mediterranean warmth than its northern neighbors. 

Lapalu's patchwork of cuvées are a result of a curious mind, years of experimentation, and perpetually evolving tastes. Today he is more interested in elegance than extraction, and his collection of wines are lively, supple, sinuous and utterly delicious.
