Anjou Rouge “Poil de Lièvre”
Location : Le Poil de Lièvre was originally the name on the land registry plan of a plot on the hills
of Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné. With its animal character, this wine certainly lives up to its name!
Grape variety : Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Soil : The soil is composed of shale, red sandstone and quartz.
Winemaking : Grapes are harvested manually when they are very ripe. They are separated from the stalks and allowed to macerate for 10 to 15 days. The free-run juice is collected and the press juice, obtained by gentle bladder pressing, is reincorporated. The wine is fermented and aged in a temperature-controlled tank.
Tasting notes : The wine boasts a deep red colour with a red fruit perfume blended with occasional ripe fruit and spice aromas. In the mouth, this wine has more character and is fuller bodied than the basic Anjou Rouge.
Serve at around 14°C.
Food pairings : Perfect with white meats, red meats and cheeses.
Keeping qualities: Keep for 5 to 6 years.
