Did you know ?

Cabernet-d'Anjou is an elegant, aromatic rosé, whose finesse is apparent from the very first sniff. Flavours include ripe red fruit (strawberries, redcurrants and raspberries) and sometimes also tropical fruit. This wide spectrum of flavour, alongside a certain mild softness, gives the wine a deliciouly easy-going character, while its mellow fragrance sets it apart from other generally dry rosés.
