Etty’s Wine Pick: Cousin Leduc Le Cousin Rouge Grolleau 2010

Grolleau is an ancient grape variety native to the Loire Valley in France that winemaker Olivier Cousin practically revived from the brink of extinction. This phenomenal example is grown 100% naturally and biodynamically and boasts an incredible nose full of violets and funky barnyard aromas that are utterly captivating. The wine shows nice tannic grip, fresh red berry fruit, chalky minerals, and vibrant acidity. A true hidden gem not to be missed! Pair with French charcuterie, cornichons, and crusty country bread or chicken tagine with chickpeas and dried apricots.
