Côte De Brouilly, Beaujolais

Jean-Claude Lapalu

Cuvée de Fous Brouilly Gamay 2017

Going on 5 yrs, thought I’d give this unusual Cru Bojo from Brouilly a try. It’s singularity is first hinted at with a 14.5% abv; it also needs air & time to really come together; finally, it has some serious tannins. Like arid desert dry tannins, or something that one would get in only a Southern French red— like Madiran ( Tannat) or Cot (Malbec). At end of day, needed a good decant or another 3/4 yrs. — 4 days ago

Lapalu is an amazing wine maker.. you should try his Pinot Noir if you can.

Shimmering violet. High-pitched red and blue fruit, violet and exotic spice scents are complemented by a floral nuance and a building mineral overtone. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering sappy raspberry, boysenberry, allspice and candied rhubarb flavors and a deeper licorice note on the back half. Closes long and precise, showing subtle tannic grip and repeating floral and mineral qualities. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2021)

Cote de Brouilly Gamay 2018

Top tier gamay. Elegant, silky texture, medium plus acidity. I give this the edge over the Brouilly bottling from ‘18. Earthy tones in the background, packed with ripe cherry and raspberry notes. Picked up weight and depth with air. Smooth finish. — 15 days ago

Cuvée La Chapelle Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2015

Fucking terrific. Elegant. Currant essence.

A hint of elegant perfumed barnyard. Lilac essence.

Palate is sweet juicy grapey. Crazy assed persistence. Sick freshness.

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2011

This bottle was a lovely gift from our friend Tim who visited Omaha this past Spring. Our only instructions were to enjoy it together with food; challenge accepted! While I have experienced many wines produced by Foillard, this was my first with his “Cote du Py”. The wine pours a deep ruby color; slightly hazy in the glass. On the nose, at least initially, there are signs of some Brett giving a barnyard characteristic but that sort of blows off (or at least becomes less obvious) with cherries, earth, blackened poblano, underripe plum, and purple Sweet Tarts taking a more central role. On the palate, it’s mostly dark cherry and blackberries showing very little in the way of evolution. Medium+ acid, medium- tannin. The finish was super long. I was really impressed how young this wine was coming across; hardly an indication of anything that would indicate ten years of age. Yet more proof that Beaujolais can cellar quite gracefully. We loved how this paired with grilled rack of lamb and a light salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, mozzarella and prosciutto. Grazie Tim! — 19 days ago

Deep violet. Deeply perfumed dark berry, cherry and licorice aromas are complemented by hints of succulent flowers, smoky minerals and baking spices. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense, mineral-driven black raspberry, cherry cola, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that firm up on the back half. Rich yet lively as well, finishing impressively long and focused, with fine detail and harmonious tannins lending gentle closing grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2021)
