One of the Loire’s more serious offerings–

La Coulée is a blend of 70% Grolleau and 30% Pineau d’Aunis. Grolleau typically produces rustic, higher acid wines, but 2020 was an excellent vintage that allowed this grape to express its more delicate nuances. This wine is incredibly serious, and combines all the characteristics of the finest Burgundian Pinot Noirs and Cru Beaujolais, kissed with a little bit of spice from the Pinot d’Aunis.
  • Benoit Courault is a self-made vigneron, who studied winemaking in Beaune and Tavel in the early 2000s.
  • In 2006, he started his own domaine with the aim of producing quality wines in the Loire.
  • Pineau d'Aunis is a dark-skinned grape known for aving a lighter body, high acid, and spicy, savory characteristics.

  • Libraries.
  • Fireplace chats that last all night long.
