Anjou Blanc AOC
Dry white wine
A refreshing wine, releasing during the tasting flavours of exotic fruits and white flowers, ideal as an aperitif and to accompany a meal of oysters, shellfish or sushi.
"The Anjou blanc 2010 is a golden yellow colour with a beautiful shine, a wine with a good level of grape ripeness. Its milky caramel profile lets through a hint of oak giving it an overall patina. This less mineral wine is broad and round. The generous palate reveals a beautiful vinosity on a quite powerful juice. However, the mineral tension is not too strongly felt in the aromas and this is most evident in the palate finish."
