100% Cabernet Franc

Anjou wine is produced in the Loire Valley region of France near the city of Angers. The wines of the region are often grouped together with the wines of nearby Saumur as "Anjou-Saumur.” Vineyards in the Anjou enjoy a mild climate, rich terroir, rolling hills and supple soils of clay, schist sand and chalk. This makes the Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc grown here develop with character and finesse, creating wines that are beautifully earthy, food friendly and full of charisma. The Regnard family has been growing and tending to their vines in this idyllic environment since the French Revolution, acquiring their first vines in 1791! Cabernet Franc is known for being dark, earthy and bursting with pyrazine notes, the green pepper smell that makes it wonderfully fun to blind taste. Cabernet Franc is also one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, hence why some Cabs and Merlots will also have that green pepper, earthy vibe. Cab Franc is known for being an amazing pair for roasted vegetables, especially things like mushrooms, asparagus, herbal and savory dishes full of spice and complexity.

It’s a go-to during the holidays as it offers a fun complement to foods that are generally a bit harder to pair with. The grape's higher acidity makes it possible to pair Cabernet Franc with tomato based dishes, vinegar based sauces like smoky BBQ and rich legumes like beluga lentils. This wine is a friend to meat eaters and vegetarians alike!
