About

93

"Vivid ruby. Displays expansive aromas of ripe red berries, exotic spices, and pungent flowers that are lifted by a smoky mineral element. Spicy, nervy and sharply detailed on the palate, offering intense red/dark berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and a hint of refreshingly bitter rhubarb. Smooth and seamless in texture, showing noteworthy energy and lift on the long, gently tannic finish."

Product Description:

"Lapalu's Eau Forte was inspired by the idea of an easy drinking wine that is seemingly simple but has length and persists. "More than meets the tongue", if you will. This isn't easy to achieve as it is not made from the oldest vines, is often not produced in warmer/riper vintages, and you have to be very careful to minimize extraction. In general, cooler years help the terroir to better express itself. This is truly a surprising wine with sinewy elegance and a very long finish. Tasty stuff! " - Importer
