2018 Château Soucherie "Reliefs" Anjou Rouge

SKU #1529913 91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Lots of beautiful red and blue fruits, tobacco, bouquet garni, and violet notes emerge from the 2018 Anjou Reliefs. Medium-bodied, it has a lively, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. This cuvée is largely Cabernet Franc yet includes 10% Grolleau, from gravelly, schist soils, brought up mostly (all?) in tank. It's a beautiful, elegant wine that's a joy to drink. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

Classic Anjou rouge composed of Cabernet Franc with a little Grolleau added for effect!

Just west of Saumur lies the region of Anjou, which is bisected by the Loire. Anjou takes on a whole different soil type. Where Chinon and Saumur are influenced by the ancient seabeds that have risen and been carved away by the river and glacial activity, Anjou is much more driven by schist soils. Schist is often thought of as a cooling soil type, giving way to brighter, crunchier flavors. This classic Anjou rouge is planted on gravelly schist soils, and with that comes a nose of red raspberries, blueberries, and tobacco. Pretty and perfumed, it also has about 10% Grolleau (an indigenous variety) blended into the cuvée that amps up the floral tones. Crackling with some nerve as well, this a food wine pure and simple. This is a perfect wine to pair up with some beautifully roasted chicken or grilled fish.
