What is Beaujolais Nouveau?
After long efforts of vinegrowing and harvests at the end of the summer, French farmers have pressed their grapes, fermented their juice and the wine is now resting comfortably in the vats, usually until the next year.
However, in order to celebrate the new vintage, some wines will be released early. Labelled as Vin Nouveau (New Wine), they are characteristically fruity and have not seen any ageing in oak.
The Beaujolais Nouveau, released globally on the third thursday of November, just a few weeks after the harvest is therefore by definition a party wine (and a worldwide marketing success!).
But unlike industrial Beaujolais usually available in most supermarkets, our selection of Beaujolais Nouveau is made by passionate winemakers who master organic, biodynamic farming practices applied to a natural winemaking process, with no to little additives and sulfites addition.
Jean-Claude is revered for his commitment to naturally-farmed, naturally-produced Beaujolais in the southernmost Cru of Brouilly. Nine hectares scattered from Mont Brouilly to Lapalu’s home village of Saint-Etienne-la-Varenne, the “gateway to the Crus”. 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.
Jean’s vineyard is grounded on the famous area of Côte du Py, near the village of Villié-Morgon. As opposed to the winemaking tendency of the Beaujolais area. Jean Foillard strives to move the vineyard’s farming towards more natural and responsible processes, working with old vines, later harvests, rigorous sorting and no to little addition of sulfur. Following these natural methods allows to release the optimal potential of Morgon.
