2017 Éclat de granite, Côte Roannaise, Domaine Sérol
This is my first 2017 from the Côte Roannaise. Eclat de granite is na early bottling from Domaine Sérol, one of the best domaines in the Côte Roannaise. This long established estate is now run by Stéphane and Carine Sérol. Granite is the predominant soil here and Gamay, the sole grape variety permitted.
The 2017 Eclat is delicious with soft vibrant red fruits and an attractive texture. This is very much a wine to enjoy its youthful fruit rather than to analyse. Another good vintage from this far flung part of the Loire.
