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 are sourced from a single block of 45 years old Grenache, which benefits from well drained clays and loams and is situated in slopes with full exposure to sun, all of which contributes to a creation of a wine of exceptional quality and character.
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 and provide you with a very satisfying drinking experience for many years to come.
The grapes were hand-picked between the second week of September and early October and then crushed and destemmed before being fermented in an open tank, with regular punch downs, throughout the fermentation period. Further maceration was conducted for four weeks to facilitate the full extraction and softening of the tannins. After pressing and malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was aged in tank for a year to preserve its rich fruit flavours and was then very lightly filtered before bottling.
160 cases of twelve bottles and 200 magnums.
Note: 98 cases are already reserved.
Colour: Bright robe, garnet with tile coloured-lights.
Nose: Complex and elegant, strawberry jam, candied fruit and dried figs.
Palate: Massive, fat with a fine minerality; good tannic structure formed from dense, fine tannins, very long with jammy fruits and spices.
Cellaring: Can be drunk now, with decanting, or you can monitor the wine’s progress as it subtly matures for at least ten years. Will go well with all meat dishes, but above all with solid winter specialities. Also perfect with a plate of cheeses.
