The Domain: Located in Renaison, in the Côte Roannaise, a little-known appellation, the Domaine de Sérol impresses with the quality of its wines. A vineyard that has long had a relationship with the famous Troisgros family, a line of starred chefs in Roanne.
Carine and Stéphane Sérol, a very welcoming couple, took over the family vineyard in 2000 and now has 27 Ha. They knew how to modernize the cellar (see photos) and tend towards biodynamic viticulture full of promise. The winegrowers vinify the vintages by plot (plot selection) to best express their different terroirs.
Éclat de Granit, vinified at 50% in whole bunches and aged in vats, comes from Gamay Saint-Romain (a rare grape variety) based on a granite terroir.
