The Astor Wines & Spirits Glossary


Dating back only to 1987, the Anjou-Villages appellation is still developing. Essentially, the appellation consists of those communes that have already proved their worth with more exalted appellations, or those that neighbour such appellations. This list includes the communes of the Coteaux du Layon (Beaulieu-sur-Layon, Faye-d'Anjou and so on), those around the Coteaux de la Loire, Savennières and neighbouring communes Bouchemaine and Possonière. Only the two Cabernets are eligible (Franc and Sauvignon), so all the wines from this appellation are red.
