L'Astrée Rosé de Loire 2019

Honey and strawberry on the palate, hot but with enough acidity to still be refreshing. Has enough presence to go with food but also great on its own. Pretty good! — a year ago

Anjou Rouge Cabernet Franc 2013

“Anjou Rouge: 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 elevage is in cuve on the fine lies for approximately eight months. We purchase on the order of 5000 bottles of this wine annually.”

If you like Cabernet Franc, this may be your jam. Blended with 10% Grolleau- a new one to me- the Chateau Soucherie “Reliefs” (Anjou Red) is a gorgeous example of Cab Franc. Quick tip: decant this puppy- it only gets better.

As it opens it reveals deeper and deeper hints of bell pepper that soften and shake off their typical acidity to form a welcoming entry to a medium-full-bodied mouthfeel that feels and rhymes with the deeper elements of pepper, stewed cherries and flint.

The finish lingers and persuades you back to the nose.

A remarkable example of Cabernet Franc, and what can be found in the Loire Valley.
