Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "...soars from the glass with aromas of rose petals, cinnamon, raspberries, Griotte cherries and blood orange. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with the most energy of any cuvée in the cellar this year, fine tannins and a long, penetrating finish. (WK)"
About Jean-Louis Dutraive
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!
