Famille Dutraive, Saint Amour "Clos du Chapitre" 2019Regular price $45.00 Save $-45.00
With a father like the beloved and famous Jean-Louis Dutraive it does not hurt the eldest son in his quest to find his own voice amongst the vines and rolling hills of the sleepy appellation of Beaujolais. With the region gaining much attention from wine geeks worldwide due to the versatility of the wines (for dining or just flat out drinking), the camaraderie of the vignerons is unparalleled. There is a young, energetic group with easy access to top vineyard sites and everyone is cheering each other on. Even after the devastating 2016 vintage, which was wiped out from hail storms, the producers remain affable and optimistic. This attitude shows up in the wines. This region isn’t focused on the big brand magazines. Instead, they just enjoy drinking with friends.
