This wine is midnight purple in the glass. The nose is loaded with red berries, barnyard funk and deep inflections of Limestone. The palate is rich and supple with crushed red fruit flavors backed by chalky minerality and notes of iron. This is a buoyantly fruity and dynamic medium-bodied red with loads of supple minerality backed by a silken note of acidity. It works beautifully with rabbit stew, veal chops, braised pork loin, paté, herb encrusted roast chicken or simply by itself.
Varietals: 100% Grolleau (An ancient variety indigenous to the Loire that Olivier Cousin has brought back from the brink of extinction.)
