Top 10 wines in the US press

Jean-Louis Dutraive Fleurie Clos de la Grand’Cour Vieilles Vignes 2010

Jean-Louis Dutraive Fleurie Clos de la Grand’Cour Vieilles Vignes 2010This was Asimov’s number one choice for a Thanksgiving red wine, he wrote: “The reds were all winners, starting with our favourite, Julia’s 2010 Fleurie from Jean-Louis Dutraive, an excellent cru Beaujolais that hit all the right marks. It’s hard to go wrong with good Beaujolais, by which I generally mean from small family operations rather than mass-market production. The good ones are lively and refreshing, while the biggest brand names tend to be candied and cloying.”

He added: “Lively, bright and full of energy, with crunchy fruit flavours. Delicious now.”

    very much in the style that won the 1976 paris judgement? Pick up a book every once and awhile and learn that the block of grapes and the winemaker do not belong to ch. montelena and have not since 1976!!!
