Jean-Louis Dutraive Fleurie Clos de la Grand' Cour 2019
Fruitier than its old vine counterpart, this flagship Fleurie defines Dutriave terroir and style. Aromas of dark cherry, violets and exotic spices on the nose. Rustic and complex on the palate, Dutraive compares the Grand'Cour to a baby Beaune Rouge in its muscle and bredth.
Jean-Louis Dutraive is a local legend, one of Fleurie's oldest and most coveted growers. He's been practicing organic winemaking since well before it was cool and makes wines that are vibrant and a little bit wild.
