2019 Brouilly Cuvée des Fous, Jean-Claude Lapalu, Beaujolais

This, unusually, comes in a Bordeaux bottle rather than Burgundy: a quirk from a strange request years ago that has been embraced as a fond tradition for this structured cuvée. Some of these vines were planted in 1900, and the concentration and depth of the wine are a notable distinction to his other cuvées. Cool blueberry fruit on the nose, and an emphatic, tannic structure on the palate, bursting with black cherry flavours. This is voluptuous Beaujolais.
