Château de Plaisance Sur la Butte, AOP Anjou [Organic & Biodynamic] 2022


Château de Plaisance

Vanessa has just 3ha of red grapes. As far as we can ascertain they are the only red grapes in the appellation. The vines are around 35 years old and this particular cépage is made up of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon mainly grown on Schist. Ageing is in Concrete vat.

Meet the producer

The estate, 25 hectares in total with 17ha in current production, is comprised entirely of plots within either Grand Cru...



Previously the blend had a slightly higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, but with the excellent 2022 vintage came a change to 50:50 Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc. 100% destemmed blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in concrete for 11 months.

Tasting notes

Bright red fruits with hints of earthiness and spice. The 2022 has a lovely broad texture making it an incredibly easy glass.

Food match

Ripe and full but tannins are incredibly well intergrated so this is very versatile. Lamb is a cracking match but will complement all manner of dishes.
