2020 Beaujolais-Villages Vieilles Vignes, Jean-Claude Lapalu

Quite unlike some Beaujolais in 2020 that are big, full-bodied and powerful, this Beaujolais Villages is as light and crunchy, fresh and juicy as you’d hope for from a glass of classic bojo. At just 12.5% alcohol it shows no signs of the heat of the 2020 vintage. In fact, it has the peppery freshness and floral, graphite notes of a fresher vintage. This is thanks to the small amount of high-altitude fruit Jean-Claude buys in, which gives acidity and definition to the richer fruit of his own organically farmed vines. It’s undoubtedly a stand-out from Jean-Claude this year, and terrific value for money.
