ABOUT CHATEAU DE BRISSAC

Originally built in the 11th century by the Counts of Anjou, the property was given to René de Cossé-Brissac by King Henry IV in 1606 who named him Duke of Brissac. René rebuilt and enlarged the property, bringing the total number of floors to seven, making it the tallest Chateau in France. Today the property still belongs to the Cossé-Brissac family who has looked over the vineyards for over five centuries. With 28 hectares of vines, the Chateau sits in the prestigious “Anjou Villages Brissac” appellation and produces wines that embody the tradition of winemaking in the Loire Valley.

  

 

 

 

 ABOUT ROSÉ D'ANJOU

 

brissac vineyards web

 

 

The vineyards that produce these slightly off-dry rosés lie between the coastal town of Nantes and the heart of the Loire Valley in Tours. Wines from the Rosé d’Anjou appellation are by law off-dry. The native Grolleau Noir grape – only found in the Loire Valley – as well as a touch of Gamay give these wines a remarkable fruity character, perfectly matched with charcuteries, sushi, snacks, salads or as simply as an apéritif.
