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

Versatile and immediately likable. Fruit and smoke. Herb and round.

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

Domaine de la Grand'Cour(Jean Louis Dutraive) Fleurie "Le Clos Cuvee Vieilles Vignes" 2014. Venison burger night. Delicious after a few, recent, unappetizing bottles of no, SO2 Beaujolais.

Stunner. True complexity in the nose. Can't say enough about the state of the tannins right now. Makes you pucker and instantly crave more

Idiosyncratic wine from a true master. 2014 is getting hard to find now so grab some soon.

Smells like smoky grape big league chew. Rowdy acid races in then more body than I ever thought I'd taste in Beaujolais. Crazy always something new.
