Item Description

"Fruit for Les Dduits' comes from some of the Dutraive familys oldest plots and is vinified in a combination of concrete and oak. The wines fresh and dark-fruited palate is marked by thirst-quenching acid and silky tannins, with classic Dutraive energy and soulfulness. Over the past three decades, Jean-Louis Dutraive has quietly established himself as one of the best winemakers in Beaujolais, and one of the most involved members of the French wine community. A rarity for a 21st century winemaker, each of Jean-Louis's three children want to follow in his footsteps as vigneronswhich will, in time, entail splitting a relatively small domaine three ways, thanks to French inheritance laws. Between the frost of May 2016 and the hail that hit Fleurie a month later, the Dutraive family lost a staggering 90 of their crop. Jean-Louis succeeded in finding some fruit for purchase in order to have something to sell, but that didnt alleviate the overwhelming feeling that these erratic and destructive weather patterns are part of the new norm. He began to question how a small family domaine would eventually support his three children, all of whom wish to play a role in the family business. Thanks to Jean-Louiss inextinguishable spirit and a large network of friends throughout France, the negotiant known as Famille Dutraive was born. The foursome -- Jean-Louis and his children Ophlie, Justin and Lucas -- are committed to sourcing organically-farmed fruit, which is still rare in Beaujolais (only 4 of the region is organic). Family practices are carried through in the cellar with traditional Beaujolaise vinification (carbonic maceration), natural yeast fermentation, and little to no sulfur used in vinification (with just a touch at the blend before bottling). Despite the fact that none of these wines come from Dutraive terroirs, the family manages to craft a lineup that fits the Dutraive profile: fresh-fruited, energetic and soulful wines that bring pure joy with every sip."~Distributor Notes
