Producer's Notes

An old family parcel kept by Jean-Louis' father when the family purchased Domaine de la Grand'Cour and moved to Fleurie. Average vins age is 50 years but many vines are well over 100 years old.
While Brouilly is known for its volcanic and decomposed rock, Jean-Louis’ parcel is unique in the Crus as it sits on limestone and clay, which gives the wine a little extra stuffing.
Organically farmed, soils are worked. Jean-Louis is a pioneer for natural viticulture in the region.
Traditional "beaujolaise" vinification in concrete tank: natural yeast fermentation, semi-carbonic maceration, no sulfur in vinification (small amount added at the blend before bottling). Jean-Louis' motto in the cellar is "minimal intervention and maximum surveillance."
60% in stainless steel and 40% in neutral barrel for 6 months, no fining or filtration, 10 mg/l SO2 added at blend just before bottling.
From a family parcel located near the house Jean-Louis grew up in, this Brouilly is an anomoly in Dutraive's Fleurie-centric lineup. It is earthy, savory and sappy, and offers endless enjoyment in every glass.
