Soft and aromatic, the Cabernet d'Anjou protected designation of origin refers to a rosé wine that stands out for its light-bodied flavor, unlike other rosés, which tend to be drier.
What you need to know
Wines from the Cabernet d'Anjou protected designation of origin are made using cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. It is the only "light-bodied" PDO rosé produced in France. Its softness, refined taste, and ripe red fruit aromas have turned it into the second-most popular rosé in France in terms of volume. The region's temperate and rather dryoceanic climate, with its limited variations in temperature, illustrates the mildness that Anjou is so famous for. These same characteristics can be found in every glass of Cabernet d'Anjou.
