*4R* 2017 Clau du Nell "Grolleau" (Loire Valley, FR)

Weight: 4R

Varietal: Grolleau

Region: Anjou, Loire Valley, France

Biodynamic      Minimal Intervention 

A compelling wine from none other than the legendary Leflaive family. Grolleau is normally used for blending and making rosé wine, but this is "the most serious Grolleau I've ever tasted" according to Jancis Robinson. Wild forest fruits, wet earth, and violet flowers abound on the nose, will the palate is sleek, elegant, and very smooth. No fining, no filtration, and of course, biodynamically farmed. This is a natural complement to funky cheeses like Delice de Poitou.
