Wine of the Week: Domaine du Fresche Anjou Blanc 2011

July 2nd, 2013


Who doesn’t love a crisp, clean, dry white wine in the summertime? Domaine du Fresche’s Anjou Blanc 2011 is bone dry, with notes of apples and pears.  Good structure, with a hit of spritz coming from a little residual carbon-dioxide, which helps lift the impression of freshness alongside the apple-like acidity running through the wine, and acts as a preservative.  This is for immediate drinking, but can aged for three to five years.


The vineyard has been certified organic since 2004, and has been run by the family Boré for the past six generations.  The range at Domaine du Fresche is diverse, three different reds are produced from either Gamay or Cabernet Franc, the white wines are made primarily with Chenin Blanc and a little Pinot Gris, and a lovely sparkling Cremant as well as a Rosé are also produced here.
