Wine of the Week - Perray Jouannet Anjou

As weather begins to warm and hints of spring find their way into the air, we're featuring a transitional red wine that lends itself perfectly to this time of year. The Perray Jouannet Anjou Rouge is a Cabernet Franc-based bottling from the Loire Valley of France. Unlike its cousin, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc is known to make a more medium-bodied red, especially in cooler regions such as Anjou. Notes of red fruit and underbrush make this the perfect choice to welcome in spring weather.

Situated on 20 hectares of schist soils mixed with the more unusual element of quartz, Château Perray Jouannet features pristine southern exposure slopes for its Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau and Cabernet Sauvignon.
