Famille Dutraive Chenas 'En Papolet' 2018

The Famille Dutraive négociant business was created by Jean-Louis himself after losing 90% of his crop to frost in 2016. The family sources only organically farmed fruit from local growers and uses carbonic maceration with native yeasts to create fruit-forward, terroir-driven wines. ‘En Papolet’ is rather mineral-driven, showing flavors of fresh herbs, wet rocks, and tart red berries. Serve slightly chilled all season long.

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
