Archange blanc

AOC Ventoux blanc Archange 2012

Terroir

The Domaine des Anges is a small, beautiful vineyard situated at 350 meters on a hillside across the valley from Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence. It benefits from altitude, a variety of soils ranging from calcareous clays to rich stony ferrous, the position of its vineyards and cooling evening breezes in summer.
The grapes for this wine are from a single block of exceptional quality, which limits production to 120 cases, made only in good years.The vineyard is situated on a north facing slope of calcareous clay exposed to the Mistral wind. It is this calcareous clay that gives the wine it’s minerality.

Made respecting traditions, going back to Roman times, and nature, through the use of organic practices, which, blended with care and experience, come together in a wine we believe will exceed your expectations.

Assemblage

100 % Roussanne

Vinification

Handpicked in the cool early morning, the grapes were crushed, destemmed and gently pressed. After 48hrs cold settling, the juice is racked and transferred to barrels for fermentation by natural yeasts. The wine matures on lees for 8 months before being filtered and bottled. Malo-lactic fermentation is avoided to preserve the wine’s elegance and exceptionality.
