Lalou is both a wine shop and a meeting space. We focus on the experience: stories about wine showing the relationship between the place of origin, the winemaker intention and the particular vintage nature.
We focus on Burgundy, Champagne, Jura, Loire Valley, and widely understood natural wines, including the orange wines category. That’s our backbone. However, we find pleasure and strength in wines from outside these regions, classic ones, new wave ones, and old school wines.
We want you to feel comfortable with us.
Wine tasting and the accompanying conversation are essential to build context and understand the story written in the bottle. Lalou sets the table where we can open, compare, discover and discuss. We want to show you essential and fascinating wines, no matter where do they come from - we want them to be part of the meetings and our awareness.
One can't separate wine from people.
Thanks to feeling the energy of wine, we know who is behind it, who they are, how they see the world. This convergence is essential to us. We know many winemakers personally, and we are friends with a number of them. Organic, biodynamic, low-intervention wines, modernists, terroirists, authenticists, and naturalists are the essence of wine. They have what we are looking for - energy!
