Justin Dutraive, Beaujolais 'Les Bulands' 2020Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
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. Following a childhood bred on his father Jean Louis Dutraive’s incomparable winemaking in Beaujolais, harvests in Oregon and Australia, and internships with family friends, Justin decided to start his own path.
Jean Louis' first purchase was “Les Bulands,” a humble terroir surrounded by train tracks and a cornfield. The first vintage was 2015 farming in the only method he knew: organically.
