Cabernet d’Anjou A.O.C.
cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon
Born at the beginning of last century, this charming wine knew its radiant success in the frivolous Paris of the “Belle époque”.
A wine from grapevines with an average age of 54 years.
Grapes are directly squeezed for one third of the volume and 2 other thirds macerate during 16 hours before to be squeezed. Grape musts are stored in barrels with a fermentation temperatures control around 16°C.
New since 2009, when the gustatory balance is reached, the grape must is pressed to use half dose of SO² (sulphur dioxide). The result is a more aromatic Rosé, a more natural fruit and a nicer colour.
from 12,50€ VAT incl.
Tasting and recommendations
This Cabernet d’Anjou gives the feeling in the mouth of masticating small red fruits.
The final is full of freshness and lightness: a gourmand wine for a festive aperitif.
He will go well with melon garnished with red fruits, tarts, fruits bowls, duck à l’orange or deserts with black chocolate.
Excellent comrade of a spicy cooking or of Asian exoticism combining sweet and sour.
