10th Paulée d’Anjou in 2022

La Paulée d’Anjou will return in 2022 for an exceptional tenth anniversary edition. Excursions in the vineyards, international participants, 100% organic or biodynamic winetasting ... The objectives of the Paulée will remain the same : allowing each participant to better understand the geology, history, terroirs and methods of the Anjou viticulture!

 

EXTENSION TO BOURGUEIL WINEMAKERS

 

The renewal started in 2019 which brought together the two key Anjou terroirs (“Anjou Blanc” near Saumur and “Anjou Noir” near Angers), will gain momentum this year and beyond, with the symbolic reconstitution of the historic Anjou Province. So for the first time, the Paulée d'Anjou will welcome around fifteen organic winegrowers from the Bourgueil and Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil appellations, bringing the total number of participants to 70 80 this year.

 

CREATION OF A CHARTER

 

The Paulée d’Anjou has collectively defined a Charter through which the participating winegrowers undertake to promote :

  •  All the riches of Anjou : its landscapes and biodiversity, its wines from unique and inimitable terroirs, its millennial history, its heritage of "beautiful stones", its gastronomy, its culture and its artists, etc...
  • A responsible and sustainable mode of viticulture, of which the region was one of the pioneers, presenting only wines being certified or in the process of organic biodynamic certification.
  • Humanist values, so often embodied by Loire Valley winemakers : open mindedness and temperance, inter generational support fostering the installation of young talents, etc...

   

TENTH EDITION OF THE PAULÉE D’ANJOU, ON 27 JUNE 2022 - CHÂTEAU DE SAUMUR

Erik Orsenna, Member of the French Academy and a genuine wine lover, will sponsor this edition.

Many activities will be offered “à la carte”, all day long: wine tasting, cruise on the Loire, commented walks in the vineyard, conferences, etc.

The tastings will take place under the stewardship of our Guest of Honour, Andrew Jefford, English writer and journalist, a lover of France and Loire wines.

A gala dinner will punctuate the event, in the majestic setting of the Manèges de Saumur.
