The Famille Dutraive brand was created by Jean-Louis himself after losing 90% of his harvest in the catastrophic frost of 2016. The grapes come from local farmers, with organic certification, and are vinified in carbonic maceration on indigenous yeasts.
Chiroubles is the most delicate of all the Beaujolais crus, with its light and fragrant character. It's the cru that matures before all the others! Its bouquet is well developed and it already has charisma when the others are still stutterers. Chiroubles has a wonderful view over the whole of the Beaujolais and the Saone river; on the best days you can see the Jura hills up to the Mont Blanc.
