2016 La Cerisaie, Domaine de la Bergerie: simply delicious
La Cerisaie is Domaine de la Bergerie's Anjou Rouge. Made from 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottled after a minimum of nine months in vat it is everything an Anjou Rouge ought to be – soft delicious fruit, little structure, no harsh tannins. In a word – just simply delicious, pure pleasure! At just under 7€ from the domaine this is a bargain. Drink young to enjoy the lovely fresh fruit. Vin des copains....
There is a place for structured reds from Anjou but that should be reserved for Anjou Villages with a longer maturation, more structure and aging potential.
