Tasting

The Château de Fesles Anjou Rouge is a deep red colour. The well-balanced nose contains aromas of ripe red fruit. Very good attack on the palate with plenty of substance, this full-bodied, elegant wine has a good persistence after tasting. Serve between 13°C and 16°C. The perfect accompaniment to cold meats, red meat, small game, soft cheese and bloomy rind cheese.
