2022 Famille Dutraive Chiroubles "Lieu-Dit Javernand", Beaujolais, France

This bend of two old vine parcels beautifully capture the bright and fresh profile of Gamay from Chiroubles. A glou glou wine with lovely balance and concentration. Another exciting addition for the Dutraive family.


There are 9 units left in stock.


A blend of two old vine parcels in the Cru of Chiroubles: 1. Poullet is located just below the village at 370 meters in altitude with a vine age of 70 years. In organic conversion 2. Javernaud is located northwest of the village at 400-430m in altitude with a vine of 60 years. Organically farmed.


Jean-Louis Dutraive is known throughout the land as a true master of Gamay. In addition to his masterful skill of producing some of the best wines in the Beaujolais, he is also a local legend with a seemingly never-ending supply of saucisson that appears at apéros any time of day.

Following vicious hailstorms in 2016 and 2017 that destroyed much of their harvest, Jean-Louis created the Famille Dutraive label with his three children: Justin, Ophélie, and Lucas. In addition to providing much-needed bottles to sell through these leaner years, the Famille Dutraive label was a way to integrate the next generation into the domaine.

The Famille Dutraive wines are made from purchased grapes sourced from carefully selected parcels that follow the spirit of organic farming, whether or not they are certified. The wines are vinified according to the same philosophy as those from the Domaine de la Grand’Cour.
