Chateau Perray Anjou Rouge


6 in stock



The prestigious and tiny appellation of Quarts de Chaume, a diminutive AOC in the heart of the Loire Valley and situated 15 km south of the Loire River, Chateau Perray Jouannet provided seasonal residence for the bishops of Angers when the iron-rich waters of Chavagnes were celebrated and taken for their healing powers in the middle ages.

This is the first wine I had ever tried from Château Perray Jouannet and I was quite impressed, as the wine offers up plenty of depth and nascent complexity in a full bodied and well-balanced format. The fine bouquet is a blend of dark berries, cassis, cigar smoke, dark soil tones, a bit of tree bark and a top note of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with a good core, some chewy tannins and very good length and grip on the long and chewy finish.
