Domaine Sérol, Eclat de Granite, Gamay, Côte Roannaise

€23.99

Delicious red made from Gamay, grown in the south-central district of the Loire. This is very much a modern, trendy, old-fashioned, traditional paradox of a wine that, though it has remained in this style for centuries, is gaining massive popularity today.

Why? It is lighter, fresher and more complex than many wines that have been popular in recent decades and is an absolute winner for very fine cuisine.

Organic to boot, this is a wine that will make your mouth water and satiate your taste buds in equal measure. Delicious.

Grown in Granite soils, as the name suggests, this is wonderfully complex Gamay that appears as a cross between Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc in its fruitiness and restrained structure.

The Family at the domaine make a wide range of different cuvées that are all extremely fine. Interestingly, this is very much not the norm in the districts around the town of Roanne, where quantity rather than quality rules winery behaviour.

This is brilliant because it means that this rather overlooked district is now fully visible and we are able to get really great regional French wines that are absolutely delicious, at less Burgundian prices.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
