I brought this to a party to share with some Loire-loving friends and didn’t take detailed notes, but it was really nice, with light, bright cherry fruit accented by lots of herbs and minerals. Subtle, smooth and interesting, very well-balanced, herbaceous but in a way that hits all the right buttons for me. Went great with a variety of appetizers.

Chris Kissack wrote:Domaine des Rochelles Anjou-Villages Brissac La Croix de Mission 2007: Rather a hot style of fruit on the nose, not fresh, with elements of raspberry swirled with toffee. Softly textured on the palate, floral, with a gentle structure which builds to a greater prominence through the middle. Gritty tannins, rather brutal towards the end, with only some stony fruit to provide any cushion. Nevertheless, a decent effort in a difficult vintage. Tasted at the Brasserie du Théâtre in Angers. 15+/20
