Origin

The Rosé d’Anjou appellation is a regional appellation within the Loire Valley wine region. The Anjou has an oceanic climate and the Loire River, along with its numerous tributaries, has an important moderating influence as it helps create a multitude of different microclimates conducive to viticulture.

Vinification

Traditional vinification in which the fresh grapes go into vat for a few hours skin maceration in order to extract aromas and colour. Fermentation is carried out in vat at a low temperature to help the development of the aromas.
