Clos de la Grand'Cour is the monopole vineyard surrounding the domaine that was purchased by Jean-Louis's father when he moved to Fleurie in 1969. The domaine produces two cuvées - one from 5 hectares of "young" vines that average 45 years old, and a "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" from the 1.8 hectares of oldest 80 year old vines.
When Jean Dutraive purchased the Domaine de la Grand’Cour in 1969, it was already one of the oldest domaines in Fleurie. The estate encompasses nine hectares divided between three contiguous terroirs: Grand’Cour, Chapelle des Bois, and Champagne. The family also has 1.6 hectares of Brouilly that have been in their holding for five generations. Jean-Louis joined his father in 1977 and took over the domaine in 1989.
The domaine has been certified organic since 2009, but practicing organic for decades prior. Jean-Louis strives to make vins de terroir above all else, and follows the same principles of winemaking for each of his cuvées: hand harvesting, whole-cluster, carbonic fermentation without any added sulfur, native yeasts, and no intervention or addition of oenologic products.
