2011 Clau De Nell Grolleau

From the brilliant minds of Domaine Leflaive in Burgundy is this outstanding new project in the Loire Valley! Iconic white Burgundy producer Anne Claude Leflaive has started up a new venture in the Loire Valley that is off and running in it's first vintage! These brilliant, biodynamic wines are extraordinary wines made from local varieties, including what would be a new variety for so many, Grolleau. This native grape is incredibly versatile, making juicy Roses, sumptuous sparkling wine, and brilliant reds that can rival some of the best Cru Beaujolais on the market. This bright and juicy red is firing on all cylinders right now, and is a must own for the adventurous! "This is a truly unique variety that is best described as the greatest Cru Beaujolais you've ever had, on steroids. It's a rich and velvety wine, with remarkable balance and texture. The fruit profile is simliar to a great Morgon, but with interesting nuance and secondary character already shining through at a young age. Beautiful wine to be adventurous on." [+]
