100% Grolleau Noir from Saint Georges sur Layon, grown on schist. 2018 was a very good year for Grolleau. Destemmed by hand - 3 weeks in tanks punched down by hand, pressing off in a vertical press and blending press and running juice. Aged in two barrels - 600l barrel for 20 months. There were a few bunches in the tank to help filter the wine which also gave the wine some structure. A wonderfully deep and elegant Grolleau which is drinking well now, but will age wonderfully.
Côme Isambert started his natural wine project in Saumur in 2013. After 12 years in the wine sector and in the organic field, Côme decided to launch his own winery to produce high-quality wines, with about 6,000 bottles a year. Côme's philosophy is to produce wines and cider that reflect the diversity and richness of the Loire Valley's terroirs and to enhance, through different vintages, the complementarity of grape varieties such as Chenin blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau Noir, Grolleau Gris, Gamay, while making a point to respect the natural winemaking process and the diversity of natural environments.
