Jean-Louis Dutraive is serious business when it comes to making unapologetically pure and natural Bojo. The Famille Dutraive négociant label first came about after 90% of his 2016 crop was lost to frost and they had to buy grapes to produce any wine that year!
The family sources organically farmed fruit from local growers and uses carbonic maceration/native yeasts to create fruit-forward, terroir-driven wines. ‘Clos du Chapitre’ is a little Lieu dit within Saint Amour, famed for producing the more serious wines of the appellation. The wine is vinified in concrete, followed by aging in steel/neutral oak for six months.
Full of crazy wild ripe cherries and warm spices like cinnamon. Supremely energetic and racy with it's acid, this has the classic Saint Amour vibrance and fun but feels a bit more serious with the crushed rock slatey edge to it.
