Remy Pannier Rose d'Anjou 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for 4 euros the last time I was in Calais.Rose D'Anjou is an AOC created in 1964 [ although viticulture has gone on here since at least the Romans ]for rose wines from 150 communes around the town of Angers in the Loire valley,the same area as for the general Anjou AOC.The predominant grape used is grolleau although others such as gamay and cabernet franc are now allowed. Grolleau is beleived to be related to the ancient grape gouais which is also thought to be a parent of gamay and chardonnay.The name is derived from the French word 'grolle ' meaning 'crow ', a reference to ther black colour of the grapes.I started my bottle on Christmas eve with my supper of tuna salad and I did enjoy it. There is plenty of a redcurrant and raspberry style fruit there. It is a semi-sweet or semi-dry wine whichever way you look at it. I am not sure it was a good match for the tuna salad but it was a pleasant enough wine.Rose D'Anjou used to be very popular but is less so today partly because the well-known American wine critic Robert Parker said that all plantings of groilleau should be riped up and replaced with gamay !
