Notes from Becky Wasserman & Co.:

“Enjouée” means playful or joyful, a perfect descriptor for this vibrant, fresh wine. Vincent and Emmanuel Ogereau both play the tuba, thus the nod to their preferred instrument on the label.

This cuvée used to be called "L'Anjouée Rouge," when the blend consisted only of Anjou's AOP-allowed varieties. As of the 2019 vintage, this wine is a Vin de France due to the inclusion of other local varieties that are not allowed by the official AOP.

2/3 of the domaine's harvest was lost during the catastrophic frost on April 13th. The domaine, thus, purchased organic Grolleau and Cabernet Franc from grower friends in the region who were less impacted in order to complete this cuvée."

Vinification varies slightly with vintage (see below). Full malolactic fermentation. Aged about 5 months in underground, tile-lined tanks. The goal is to preserve the freshness of the fruit. Light earth filtration.
