France - Loire Valley

The Rosé d'Anjou AOC, also known as Anjou Rosé AOC, produces medium-sweet rosés. Wines are made predominantly from Grolleau, with percentages of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Malbec and Pineau d'Aunis permitted. Anjou soils reflect the geological identity of its border position between Armorican and Parisian basins. The terroirs consist of metamorphic and crystalline rocks (schist, sandstone) known as Anjou Noir, and ‘Terres Blanches’ (white earth) limestone known as Anjou Blanc. The AOC covers 1,890 hectares (4,668 acres).

The Grolleau grape derives its name from the French word ‘grolle’, meaning crow – a reflection of the dark black color of the grapes.

Crisp and refreshing with vibrant aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Juicy and well-balanced with a long finish.

2019 Alain de la Treille Rose d'Anjou - 90 PTS - VINOUS

2019 Alain de la Treille Rose d'Anjou - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Limpid orange-pink. Sharply focused raspberry and cherry scents pick up a suave floral quality with air. Offers nicely concentrated red fruit and candied rose flavors; a late jolt of spiciness adds lift and firm cut. Closes long and precise, with repeating florality and a subtle wisp of anise. This Rosé is rich enough to work with full-flavored dishes but it displays a surprisingly light touch and a tangy edge that make it enjoyable by itself. - Josh Raynolds"
