Clau de Nell Grolleau 2019

The biodynamic Clau de Nell domaine was begun by the late Anne-Claude Leflaive and is now run by her widower Christian Jacques. Grolleau is a grape native to the Loire and best known for being made as a rosé wine. However, at Clau de Nell, they treat it like their other grape varieties to produce a fruity and deep red wine. Half the wine is aged on lees for 12 months while the other half is aged in foudres and then four months in stainless steel tanks. Bottled on a flower day without fining or filtration. Deep purple in colour, it reveals itself with notes of red cherries, raspberries, strawberries, fresh and crunchy, enhanced by a spicy and floral touch. A delicate structure emerges in the mid-palate with a long and precise finish. A light wine with a singular character perfect for the start of a meal with a few tapas.

The Loire Valley is home to some of the worlds most recognisable and distinguished white wines. The Sauvignon Blanc grape is the variety that most people will have probably experienced at some time (perhaps without realising it!) through the fantastic white wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume....

Organic Vines in Vineyard

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
