Grand'Cour Cuvee VV Le Clos - Fleurie' Gamay Beaujolais, France 2019
Regular priceSale price
Jean-Louis Dutraive is known among his peers as "the heart of Beaujolais." He is the old school tradition of Fleurie, a mentor to young winemakers in the region and one of the pioneers of organic winemaking in Beaujolais. Domaine de la Grand 'Cour was established in 1969 and- like the A's sweeping the Giants in the world series- Jean-Luis was handling business by 1989.
The VV Le Clos comes from a walled-in, old-vine vineyard planted in the 1940s. Old school Beaujolais carbonic method, all organics, no sulfur. 11-12 months in 1-4 yo barrels. Raw, pretty Beaujolais.
