About

93

Bright violet color. Expansive, mineral-accented blue fruit, floral and five-spice powder aromas, along with hints of white pepper and candied licorice. Offers sappy, impressively concentrated boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that spread out and become sweeter with aeration. Closes impressively long and smooth, with resonating florality and fine-grained tannins that come on late.

Product Description:

The Famille Dutraive n├ęgociant business was created by Jean-Louis himself after losing 90% of his crop to frost in 2016. The family sources only organically farmed fruit from local growers and uses carbonic maceration with native yeasts to create fruit-forward, terroir-driven wines. This energetic Gamay is signature Dutraive, showing poppy red fruit flavors noted with earthy, wet stone undertones.
