2015 Val de Loire Rouge Grolleau

Catherine & Pierre Breton

2015 Val de Loire <i>Rouge</i> Grolleau Catherine & Pierre Breton - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $25.00

Catherine and Pierre Breton like to party, and their wines make it easy to party: just one sip feels like an invitation to forget pressing matters and boogie down. Lively, fruit-driven cuveés such as Trinch!, La Dilettante, and Les Galichets have always captured the bon-vivant spirit of these friendly vignerons, but now for the first time ever, we are introducing a new bottling that, dare I say, boosts the boogie factor completely through the roof.

This new wine in the Breton book is a pure old-vine Grolleau from soils of clay and silex. The result of a carbonic maceration in wooden vats, it clocks in at a mere 10.4% alcohol, and shows its best with a slight chill. Expect hints of pepper, tomato leaf, earth, and an explosion of juicy red fruit like raspberry and cherry, plus other little berries that burst under the tooth with brightly flavored nectar. We expect it to go fast, so don’t miss out on this novelty from our friends in the Loire: drink it frequently, in large quantity, and of course, don’t forget to quaff responsibly. –Anthony Lynch
