Grolleau is one of the Loire Valley's quintessential red grape varieties but for some reason it's relatively unknown beyond the French border. Think light red fruits, relatively little tannin, but with forest floor, graphite, black pepper and even wild fennel upon opening up. Grolleau is a delicious lighter red you can enjoy at room temp or with a slight chill. 

Loire Valley vigneron Benoît Courault is something of a legend in French wine circles. Having cut his vinous teeth is Chambolle-Musigny (Burgundy) and then in Tavel with Eric Pfifferling of L'anglore, he returned to the Loire to take over 6.5 hectares in Anjou. His vineyard is organic, tended to entirely by hand and horse, and his non-interventionist philosophy extends into the winery. All of his wines we have tasted to date have been a total joy to drink.
