PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Welcome to the 'Volcanic Loire"!
Located at the foothills of the Madeleine Mountains, the 200 hectares of the C么te Roannaise AOP are amongst the original vineyards of the Loire Valley. While geographically and officially part of the Loire, the C么te Roannaise is closer in distance, geology, and winemaking to Beaujolais.

This eastern region, known as "The Volcanic Loire" boasts soils of granite and volcanic basalt that give gamay both minerality and drive. The best producer聽in this unique, small appellation is Domaine S茅rol, led by Stephane S茅rol and his wife Carine. They produce a range of distinctive wines marked by elegance, freshness, and, of course, granitic minerality, hence their bottling name of聽"Eclat de Granit".

Domaine S茅rol famously produces a cuv茅e exclusively for the neighboring Michelin three-star restaurant 鈥楾roisgros鈥. The S茅rols are great friends of the Troigros family: Michel Troigros co-owns the "Les Blondins" Vineyard with them. The S茅rol property dates back to the 17th century and was passed from generation to generation. When St茅phane and Carine took over in 1998, the domaine totaled 12 hectares; with the S茅rol/Troisgros聽partnership,聽they are聽now farming 28 hectares and have converted the domaine to organic/biodynamic viticulture.

The 2022 Domaine S茅rol C么te Roannaise Eclat de Granite has aromas and flavors of black cherries and black raspberries interwoven with savory herbs and wet stone. The palate is medium-to-full-bodied and silky, with bright acidity that brings it to a long finish. 20 minutes in the decanter will allow the fruit characters to magnify beautifully on the palate.
