Jean Dutraive purchased the estate of Domaine de la Grand Cour in 1969 and was joined by his son and fifth generation vigneron Jean-Louis in 1977. The heart of the property is composed by the lieux-dits of Clos de la Grand Cour, Chapelle des Bois and Champagne which make up a total of 9 ha of vines in Fleurie. Additionally, the family has 1.6 ha in the cru of Brouilly. The average age of the vines is between 40 and 50 years with some as old as 70 years old. The property has been certified by ECOCERT since 2009 though the vines were farmed organically well before that. The goal is to make wines intended to develop and evolve over a minimum of 10-12 years. (6/2016)
