Robert-Sérol l'Incorruptible 2014
Notable for their fresh and drinkable nature, our reds and rosés provide a range of expressions of the Gamay grape.
With a commitment to the Côte Roannaise that spans generations, the Domaine Robert SEROL cultivates 24 hectares of vines ranging from 5 to 80 years of age.
Situated on the foothills of the Massif Central, the 200 hectares of the AOC Côte Roannaise is the first wine producing area of the valley of the Loire river, near its source. Since the beginning, Robert has taken an active role in developing recognition for the appellation. And since 2003 Stéphane has also contributed to the promotion of the Côte Roannaise.
The soil, a mixture of granite and porphyry, and the climate are both ideal for the production of Gamay Saint Romain, the traditional local grape variety. This terroir also lends itself to the full development of the Viognier grape. The first vines of this variety were planted in 2007 and in 2010 the resulting wines were first produced with the Géographique Protégée: Vin de Pays d’Urfé designation.
Our domaine is composed of primarily sandy granite soil, with a south-southeast exposure and between 350 and 450 meters in altitude.
