Reviews 90 points Wine Advocate "...exhibits aromas of ripe plums, cherry and kirsch. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and chewy, with an ample core of concentrated fruit and firm structuring tannins. (WK)" 93 points Vinous "Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Aromas of cherry pie, dark berries and candied licorice are lifted and sharpened by a smoky mineral note. Energetic and chewy on the palate, offering appealingly sweet blueberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors that stretch out slowly and become deeper with aeration. Fine-grained tannins build steadily on a very long, floral-dominated finish that shows excellent delineation and mineral thrust. (JR)"

Jean-Louis Dutraive of Domaine de la Grand'Cour in Fleurie Beaujolais

About Jean-Louis Dutraive

Jean-Louis Dutraive, affectionately known as the "heart of Beaujolais" among his peers, is more than just a skilled winemaker. Beyond his exceptional wines, this humble vigneron is a true neighbor in the true sense, always ready to lend a helping hand or share his knowledge on natural farming.

With roots in Brouilly, the Dutraive family relocated to Fleurie in 1969, and Jean-Louis took the reins of the winemaking operation in 1989. He now oversees production at three prized vineyard sites: Clos de la Grand’Cour, Chapelle des Bois, and Champagne. Each vineyard imparts its own unique character to the house's renowned Gamay wines, known for their rich, floral, spicy, and age-worthy qualities. Chapelle des Bois boasts elegant florals and freshness, Clos de la Grand’Cour displays muscular fruit and exotic spices, and Champagne's pink granite soils and century-old vines produce mineral-driven wine with silky red fruit flavors.

Their bold and complex flavors make them a delectable treat, perfect for enjoying with or without food!
