Jean-Louis Dutraive Fleurie Clos de la Grand' Cour 2012

Jean-Louis Dutraive Fleurie Clos de la Grand' Cour 2012

Recommended by Eric Asimov in his November 14th column as a wine pairing for Thanksgiving calling it "an excellent cru Beaujolais that hit all the right marks." The estate of Domaine de la Grand Cour dates back to 1969 when it was purchased by Jean Dutraive, making it one of the oldest in the village of Fleurie. Jean Dutraive was joined by his son and fifth generation vigneron Jean-Louis in 1977. By 1989, the reins were fully in Jean-Louis’ capable hands. The heart of the property are the lieu-dits of Clos de la Grand Cour, Chapelle des Bois and Champagne which make up a total of 9 hectares of vines in Fleurie, surrounding the house and cellars. Additionally, the family has 1.6 hectares in the cru of Brouilly. The average age of the vines are around 40-50 years, with a good chunk around 70 years old.
