Domaine de la Grand'Cour Fleurie Clos de la Grand'Cour 2018
If Beaujolais had a Grand Cru classification.....this would be one!
This exotic beauty is perhaps the most understated and rustic in Jean-Louis' range. Like all the wines made by Jean-Louis, this wine finds a striking level of purity and focus after some time in the glass. It is the only wine in the range that spends time in old large foudre in addition to concrete. It is a beauty and is always underrated in this line of brilliantly expressive wines. Jean-Louis uses different levels of Sulfur in his cuvées and this wine sees a single addition of 10 parts per million SO2 one month before bottling. Organic sourced grapes.
A fabulous wine, very light and incredibly mature taste. It was a big hit over the Christmas holiday and the wine I served on Christmas day.
