Domaine De La Grand'Cour (Jean-Louis Dutraive) Les Clos Cuvée Vielles Vignes Fleurie Gamay 2014

Vines for this cuvee come from an 8 hectare "clos" (walled vineyard), a monopole of Dutraive planted in the 1940s. Woodsy and savory, an intriguing Cru Beaujolais that's worthy of a spot in your cellar

After the hype from Somm2 and good feedback from wine biz buds, my verdict is this is a very, very good Beaujolais Cru. I definitely recommend you try it if you are into Burgundy or esp Cru Bojo. My wife guessed Burgundy blind when I poured it for her. Like ripe red raspberry and bing Cherry, with a dash of roasted herbs smeared on a granite rock...yeah, literally that. The aroma is a perfume of red fruits caught in a tug of war with a granite rock-like minerality and roasted herbs and forest floor. The palate is dead sexy, juicy and sappy fruit and acidity, with a perfect balance and elegance that feels weightless. Thanks for the enlightenment @Jason Wise and @Brian McClintic! Now I can add #dutraive to my faves from #beaujolais like #lapierre #thivin #foillard #sunier #thevenet

Great wine! Probably best to check in after 2-3 years.
