Christine and Joel Menard have been making wine in the Coteaux du Layon AOC for more than twenty years. They are among a handful of producers growing lesser-known Loire Valley grape varieties, like this Grolleau. Cloudy ruby in the glass with layers of cherry pit & plum. The palate has a ton of red fruit flavors boosted by scintillating minerality & silken folds of acidity. A complex & vibrant red.
