Complex red fruit, bananas, granite, whisper of oak spice, kitsch. Well made.

Beautiful aroma on the nose. Like putting your nose to the soil in Beaujolais and taking a big whiff. Or perhaps gaining access to a musty cellar, smelling the cold damp concrete and rotted cedar beams. Light body and smooth finish properly highlight what I would consider the best smelling wine I’ve ever sniffed.

Lively red fruits with hints of tropical stone fruits coming through. Juicy acidity. Delish!

Had with vietnamese rolls; nice light but unexceptional Brouilly; light sweet cherries and minerality.

Good fruit. Earthy and juicy. A bit simple, but versatile with food. Lived long in the bottle. You need to let it breathe. I do like Lapalu and enjoyed this wine. But I do think his other named Broully is better.
