Jean Claude Lapalu is one of a handful of organically certified producers in Beaujolais. Brouilly is one of the famous 10 'Crus' of the region, and the vines harvested for this 'Cuvée des Fous' are over 100 years old. Uniquely for Beaujolais, it is bottled in a Bordeaux bottle due to an amusing conversation about selling bordeaux in 2000. The wine was incredibly popular, and the bottle shape stuck!
David and Michele are definitely Beaujolais's ones to watch. They work organically in some of the regions best cru's, and their Beaujolais Villages really shows the amazing potential in this often overlooked region.
