Chateau La Variere 2007 Anjou Villages Brissac la chevalerie

85 points

Anjou Villages Brissac, Loire. 14%

For a difficult vintage here is another Loire red with dense dark colour and 14% alcohol. Quite a hard savoury wine, not green but without ripe flavours and tannins. If given this blond I’d more guess it were Malbec (from the Sud Ouest not Argentina) than Cabernet.

Leave for 3-5 years.
