Wine Comments
A very pretty rosé made entirely with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in order to bring freshness and balance. The vineyard is located in the village of Saint Lambert du Lattay. L'Anjouée is an easy drinking youthful rosé with a beautiful raspberry colour so typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromatically expressive with hints of raspberries, gooseberries, wild strawberries and cherries. The wine has a pleasant mouthfeel with a pronounced vegetal freshness along with subtle notes of fresh mint and eucalyptus. Soft, well balanced with a slight sweetness paired with an appetising acidity.

The Domaine
Domaine Ogereau is located in the heart of the Anjou appellation near the town of Angers. It is run by fourth-generation vigneron, Vincent Ogereau and his wife Catherine. After obtaining his diplomas in viticulture and oenology, their son Emmanuel jetted off to New Zealand to work the harvest. He also studied wine business in Dijon, trained in Burgundy and in Oregon. In 2015, with plenty of experience under his belt, Emmanuel returned to work alongside his parents for good. He represents the 5th generation involved in the domaine and his dynamism has no limit. His immense passion for the wines of Anjou is palpable and as a young vigneron he aspires to do everything right. Emmanuel Ogereau is known as the brightest rising star in Anjou and he richly deserves this reputation. Now fifth generation at the Domaine Ogereau, he shares the same ambition as his parents: engaging with nature and respecting the personality of each of their terroirs.
The Ogereau are great believers in Chenin although they also produce superb Anjou rouge from Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are also seriously devoted to their terroirs as their 25 hectare estate is like a mosaic of parcels (over 30) and soils (schists, sandstones, volcanics rocks). All the Ogereau's wines reflect their individual terroir which the family has the utmost respect for.

Traditional work is carried out in the vineyard and the harvest is hand-picked. Since 2008, Vincent has been implementing organic farming principles although the wines are not yet certified organic.
“to make great wine you must have excellent grapes. We concentrate on producing the best possible grapes that reflect both their terroir and the particular character of each vintage”. Vincent Ogereau
