Chateau d’Anglès Classique Blanc (France)

Chateau-dAnglès-Classique-Blanc

 10,00

Bourboulenc is for many a quite unknown grape in the world of wine. It's a white variety that grows mostly in southern France and is the star in this little jewel of a wine. Approachable and intriguing at the same time. Your mouth will be flooded with flavours of citrus and white fruits along with that characteristic minerality that you find in wines from La Clape. Sip during lunch or dinner (seafood!) or even in between.

Aroma:
White fruit, citrus, a floral scent, harmonious with a hint of sea minerals.

Taste:
Refreshing but fleshy, spicy and creamy.

Chateau d’Anglès
Chateau d’Anglès is a leading quality producer situated in the heart of La Clape, on the Mediterranean coast in France’s Languedoc region. Here, the Fabre family crafts exciting Grenache based red wines and surprising whites from the local Bourboulenc grape.

Owner and winemaker Eric Fabre served as the Technical Director at Chateau Lafite Rothschild in Bordeaux for nearly a decade, so having reached the pinnacle of Cabernet based red wines, he turned his attention to finding the perfect place to pursue a new direction emphasizing Grenache based reds.

Along with his wife, Christine, Eric Fabre began his search in 2001 and quickly discovered the magic of this southern French coastal terroir. Since their purchase of Chateau d’Angles that same year, this stunning estate has received 35 Gold Medals – and a ton of exciting coverage from leading wine critics around the globe, including Decanter Magazine, Jancis Robinson and others.

The Region

Languedoc-Roussillon | France

The Languedoc-Rousillon area was once a source only for cheap and uninteresting bulk wine… But wine production in this sun-drenched region, hugging the Mediterranean from the Rhône delta to the Spanish border, has undergone a major change in recent years. Languedoc-Roussillon is now proving its ability to make wonderful terroir wines at very reasonable prices. The region is thriving with so many exciting wine producers and it has fewer traditions to respect than, say Bordeaux and Burgundy, so these growers are not afraid to experiment and innovate.

It’s France’s biggest wine region, with a bit over 200,000 hectares (almost 500,000 acres). A quarter of the French vineyard acreage. It has a variety of climates and a matching variety of wine styles. Vines grow both along the Mediterranean and in the mountainous inland. These mountains and the winds give cooler sites enabling the talented producers to make wines with a crispy freshness.

While the Languedoc and Roussillon appellations are usually lumped together, wines made in these two areas are typically quite distinct in style. The Languedoc, located closer to the Rhône Valley, produces everything from juicy, fruit bombs meant for immediate pleasure to more serious, full-bodied, and structured wines that call to mind the best examples from the Rhône Valley. Roussillon, on the other hand, is an essentially Catalan region near France’s border with Spain, producing distinctly warm wines of near-roasted ripeness. One aromatic element that infuses many of the Roussillon wines from across this region is that of ‘garrigue‘, the wild and pungently herbal/spicy brush that dots hillsides along France’s Mediterranean coast.
