Côte Roannaise Éclat de Granite, Domaine Sérol 2020

4.750000000 star rating 4 Reviews
Deliciously fruity gamay with a flavour of cherry and strawberry. This comes from an area to the west of Beaujolais and is on a par with a good Brouilly, and the grape variety is the same gamay. Lovely to drink cool with a plate of charcuterie.

Domaine Robert Sérol

The Côte Roannaise is a little-known appellation of the southern Loire valley, close to the river’s source near Lyon. Domaine Sérol is the leading estate here, situated on gentle slopes of sandy-granite soils where the gamay grape, more usually associated with Beaujolais, does incredibly well. Winemaker Stéphane Sérol consistently produces plump, fragrant reds unsurprisingly not dissimilar to the style of a good Beaujolais-Villages but even brighter. These are best served lightly chilled and are refreshingly vibrant in style. Some gamay rosé is also produced and Sérol has newer plantings of viognier from which he makes a vin de pays that is floral with characteristic Loire crispness. The Sérols share their passion for the wines of the area with the Troisgros family, famous for their three-star Michelin restaurant in the town of Roanne where the red Vieilles Vignes cuvée is the house wine.
