La cuvée LE PÉROU

Le Pérou est un breuvage d’une gourmandise étonnante (12,5 °C). Un vin de soif aux tanins discrets et élégants. C’est une corbeille de fruits passant des agrumes aux fruits rouges pour finir sur le fumé dû à la chaleur de son micro-climat. Vin aérien, vibrant, gouleyant ! Le format magnum est bien adapté.

Between New-York where she practices her profession and the training exercices for the World’s Best Sommelier competition (7-12 february 2023 in Paris), Pascaline Lepeltier visited La Paulée d’Anjou on june 2022, a professional wine fair in Saumur (49) where were presented the new vintages of the Loir wines.

Pascaline comes from Angers and keeps very close ties with this region and its wines, she follows its evolution very closely. For the RVF Magazine, she reveals her last crushes and favorite new discoveries.

Which are your last crushes in Anjou?

Pascaline Lepeltier : I really like the vintage 2021 from Domaine de la Chevalerie, it is transcending, overriding. I also like Bruno Rochard’s grolleau wines (Domaine Mirebeau), especially the cuvée Les Coteaux Kanté, you can taste it from the beginning to the end of your meal, 10 year after bottling.

The great red vintages in Anjou ?

1900 ! All joking aside, I think it was relevant to speak about « great vintages » 20 or 30 years ago. Today there is only great winemaker but no great or small vintage.

The rising stars ?

I think that the Puy-Notre-Dame constellation concentrates many talented winemaker. Plenty of things are happening over there at the moment. I think about Domaine l’Autral and Domaine de la Renière.

In the Anjou Noir, that should be now apparently called « Anjou Schistes », I really like the Domaine Les Errances. Also Aurélien Revillot, a winemaker from Bourgueil is coming up for some times now .

I also like Domaine des Frères in Chinon. They are raising the pitch day after day!

What is your Proust’s madeleine from the area?

I had quite early the chance to drink very old wines from domaine La Coulée de Serrant. It remains into the veins!

After that, the wines of Mark Angeli from domaine La Ferme de la Sansonnière. The first sweet wine that I have ever tasted should have been a Coteau du Houet drunk when I started to work with Jacques Thorel, previous chef of the Auberge Bretonne in La Roche Bernard (56). Mark Angeli was present that day. This winetasting has changed my live forever !,4804375.asp?fbclid=IwAR3zB02TTxgX4IGHTUKqPYXSPjMI7vmu7f1egZoMuqaM_rkd6Fhz0f7BZgQ
