Domaine Les Hautes Noëlles is a family property founded in 1930 in the village of St. Leger les Vignes in the appellation "Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu". A manuscript has referred to vines being grown in the village as early as 1180. To preserve the environment, the domaine is committed to the process of organic farming. For many years, no herbicide has been used and they have excluded all chemicals from their plots, using only natural products. This red blend consists of roughly 45% grolleau noir, 45% gamay, and 10% cabernet franc, varying slightly by vintage. Grolleau noir is one of the Loire Valley's mainstay grapes, appearing most often in rosé. It has intense color but rather diffuse flavors, making it useful in blends to soften more intense grapes while adding a deeper hue. This easygoing red is full of fresh fruit and pepper and has soft tannins with a balanced structure. Sustainably grown.
