Domaine des Rochelles, 2017 Update

Although not the most famous name in Anjou, there is no doubt in my mind that the Lebreton family of Domaine des Rochelles curate one of the most important domaines in the Anjou region. Five generations have shaped it, from the originator Edouard Lebreton, through to Jean-Yves Lebreton and the latest member of the family to take hold of the reins, Jean-Hubert Lebreton (pictured below). This is an excellent source both of Coteaux de l’Aubance and of Anjou-Villages Brissac, with Cabernet Sauvignon playing a significant role in two different cuvées of the latter, making this a very interesting domaine indeed.

In this most recent tasting I met up with Jean-Hubert to taste some of the latest releases. A few notes on wines from the 2016 vintage I have already slotted into my recently published Loire 2016 vintage report, so here I focus solely on the other wines, from the 2015 and 2014 vintages.
