The Grosbois estate, which has been in the family since 1820, sits squarely in the Loire Valley, which means Chinon country for reds. But after losing 80% of his 2016 harvest in the Loire, Nicolas Grosbois took his 'Cuisine de ma mère', his classic Chinon, on vacation in Southwest France to borrow some organic grapes from a friend there. And thus, his glou-glou cuvée made from Duras, Braucol, Merlot and Syrah (the typical spicy, dense grapes of the Gaillac region) was born.
With plush fruit and lush tannins, this is a decadent, fruit-forward wine. The fruit is dark, earthy and inky, dripping with jammy blueberries blackberries but balanced by menthol and smoke. A killer BBQ wine. SERVE LIGHTLY CHILLED.
