Domaine Lefebvre d'Anselme
I met Marin Lefebvre this year whilst I was visiting the Pfifferling family at Domaine L'Anglore; Marin was working there and Thibault Pfifferling suggested we taste some of his wines at the end of the tasting, well I am glad we did!
The Domaine Lefebvre d'Anselme is located in Sabran and produces various wines (white, red, rosé) within the Côtes du Rhône and Vin de France appellations. We tasted a stunning, solar white full of vibrant, herbal scented fruit, full of vim and vigour; a pure Cinsault that was fresh, crisp and oh so juicy, it's lightness and brightness an addiction. Finally the tour de force was the red Côtes du Rhône Trilogie, this was something else, recalling the great wines of Chateau des Tours, wine of a distinct character and dimension with a capacity to evolve and improve greatly. That was it, I had to have the wines!
I didn't get the chance to visit the estate on this trip, but importantly I have secured some wines to bring to Australia and will make sure I get a full update for you all in the future. But for now....don't miss these wines.
