Located a few kilometres from the Loire, in the middle of vines, Villa Lorane is a beautiful building made out of tufa, the local luminous white rock, and topped with a blue slate roof. Its bucolic garden with various types of roses invites visitors to enjoy the famous douceur angevine (sweet life in Anjou).
Suave, fresh, rich, fruity flavours. Delicious wines providing a great deal of pleasure.Grape varieties: Gamay, Grolleau, Cabernet franc.
Age of the vines : 30 year-old (average)
Vineyard size : 9 hectares
Soil: Made from selected plots with clay-schist soil. The berries are regularly tasted to target optimum ripeness. Precision winemaking to bring out the grape variety's qualities: a beautiful pale colour and an intense, complex bouquet combining varietal aromas (citrus) with ones brought out by fermentation (amyl, sweets, strawberry).Tasting notes : Attractive brilliant pink colour with red highlights. Concentrated bouquet with a remarkable range of aromas: yellow peach, pineapple, fresh grapes, strawberry, and boiled sweets, as well as a marked black pepper component. Full-bodied, velvety, and superbly balanced. The wine is crunchy and smooth on the palate, with pronounced flavours of strawberry raspberry. Delicious long aftertaste.
Food & Wine Pairing : A wine for summer food: delicatessen meats, sweet-and-savoury appetisers (cheese and grapes, devils on horseback, etc.), as well as grilled meats. Desserts: goes very well with strawberries, red fruit sorbets, and fruit salads.
All year round: crab egg rolls and Oriental cuisine. Also: fromage frais and blue cheeses. Best enjoyed well-chilled
