Domaine des Rochelles Anjou l'Ardoise 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £11 from the website www.houseoftownend.com. Anjou is an apellation created in 1987,although viticulture in the area goes back centuries,for red,white,rose and sparkling wines from 150 communes around the town of Angers in the Loire valley.Domaine des Rochelles is a family owned concern in this area.This particular cuvee consists of 90% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast chicken.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,cherry and menthol style fruit with soft but structured tannins.In short,this is a lovely wine that went well with the chicken.
