Familial property of 35ha, cultivated in high density, on the eastern foothills of the Massif Central, near the gorges de la Loire. This cuvée is similar to Les Originelles in that it is from a blend of different vineyards and that the amount produced and vineyards that it is sourced from vary from year to year. Its identity comes from the granitic soils in each terroir and the older vine ages: while the youngest vines may be only 10 years old, some of the domaine’s oldest vines give their fruit to this cuvée as well. More entrenched vine root systems add complexity and the granite soils are the hallmark of the Sérol’s terroir. Côte Roannaise, one of the most southerly regions in the Loire, is just west of Beaujolais and the wines show a lot of similarities. The soils are granite and clay, the grape is Gamay, fermentation is whole bunch. Lots of bright red fruits (strawberries, raspberries) on the youthful nose, with herbs and spices, giving way to a silky-smooth mouthfeel.
