2021 Mary Taylor Anjou Rouge Pascal Biotteau
A blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, from 25-30 year old vines in area of Anjou-Villages that falls on a geological fault-line. Half of the vineyards are grown in slate soils, the other half is grown in tuffeau (chalky limestone in the Paris basin). The wine is made without additives, and is macerated for ten days in ambient temperature with ambient yeasts. Bottled without filtration. Certified sustainable.
Dried rosebuds, wet forest floor, pine needles, rosemary and savory saddle. Touch of ripe olive. Black cherry and plum on the palate, with a tannic edge and white stone providing definition. Made by 4th generation of the Biotteau family in a conscientious farm in the Coteaux de L’Aubance within the Anjou-Villages. A Mary Taylor White Label Series wine, chosen for its sense of place and showcasing the appellation's essence. 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. We also love Pascal Bioutteau's Anjou Blanc.
