Anjou Rouge, “Reliefs”
This lively, fruity red retains a strong minerality to its finish that lends class and balance to this simple and reasonably priced wine. Cabernet Franc forms the backbone of this wine (90%) but is blended with a touch of Grolleau (10%). The vines are planted to gravel and schist soils. The élevage is in cuve on the fine lies for approximately eight months. We purchase on the order of 5,000 bottles of this wine annually.
