• a wine-growing area in the western Loire region of France that produces mainly white wine made from the Chenin Blanc grape variety and a smaller quantity of rosé and red wine. The rosé wines are the best known, and include the undistinguished and often sweetish Rosé d’Anjou AOC and the higher-quality Cabernet d’Anjou AOC. Good red wine is produced in the Anjou-Villages AOC, and light reds, especially from the Gamay grape, are made elsewhere in the area.
