The Details

100% biodynamically cultivated old-vine Grolleau from the heart of the Loire. Medium-length maceration followed by aging for 12+ monjths. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, minimal SO2. 13%ABV

From hic wine merchants: 

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.
