The 2015 Cote de Brouilly, which normally is a little more austere than Lapalu's other cuvées due to the terroir, has wonderful blackberry and cassis scents on the nose that is very pure and yes, a little austere. The palate is very precise, packed to the rafters with pure dark cherry and cassis fruit, its core of sweetness offset by the firm structure and the keen line of acidity. Mineral driven right to the finish, this will be a fabulous Côte de Brouilly to savor over the next decade. (NM)
Brilliant violet. Vivid, mineral-accented blue fruit and floral pastille scents, along with a hint of smoky Indian spices. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a musky touch of licorice. The mineral note reappears on a long, taut finish shaped by dusty, building tannins. (JR)
