45 Percent Grolleau Noir, Heho Loire Red from Domaine Les Hautes Noelles

Clocking in at low 12% alcohol as Loire wines tend to do, Heho Rouge from Domaine les Hautes Noelles will please many palates and not break your party budget at around $10.

This red blend is 45% Cabernet, 45% Grolleau Noir, 10% Gamay.


Winemaker's tasting notes point to Cabernet bringing structure and vanilla while Grolleau Noir is responsible for peppery tones and Gamay adds fresh fruit flavors.

Sante and thanks to Serge Batard for creating Heho.
