2019 Domaine de la Grand'Cour Fleurie 'Le Clos' Vieilles Vignes
This is the serious estate grown gear from Jean-Louis Dutraive. It's not cheap but it's worth every cent.
This, like all of Dutraive wines is very hands off. Totally zero zero but done so by a man with the most delicate touch.
Complex aromas of dusty earth, red fruit and black pepper give way to flavors of tart raspberries, blackberries, dry earth, savory herbs, hints of cedar and nutmeg. Tannins totally smooth and the finish is incredible.
This really is some of the best Beaujolais available and something that absolutely rivals very good Côte d'Or Burgundy.
