Winemaker's Notes

The region of Anjou is an old French province near the town of Angers, covering both banks of the Loire, between the Touraine and the Pays Nantais. The climate is mild, owing to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean. The region is famous for its excellent rosés that are either dry or semi-sweet. The soil west and south of Angers is comprised of shallow chalky and schistic clays covering a bedrock. WINEMAKER NOTES The wine is pale salmon color and offers fruity aromas of berries and spices. It is smooth and harmonious on the palate owing to the touch of acidity resulting from the composition of the "terroir". SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS Served chilled, this rosé it is a delicious accompaniment to cold meats, terrines, fish soup, fruit desserts and fresh goat cheeses.
