Chateau D' Angles

Château d'Angles is located in the enclave of the La Clape region of the Languedoc-Roussillon area of France. Vines were first planted here by the Roman soldiers of the 10th Legion, who had been gifted it by Julius Caesar as a reward. Wine-making continued for centuries: the Baillys of d'Anglés governed much of the Languedoc on behalf of the French King from 1226 until the time of the French Revolution, after which Barthélmy Etienne d'Anglés, the local Mayor, managed to reacquire the estate. It remained in the family for more than 100 years, after which it was split in two. However, Eric Fabre and his wife Christine were able to obtain both sites in 2001 and reunited them as Château d'Angles. Eric had a wealth of wine-making experience, having spent eight years as technical director at Château Lafite Rothschild. He is now assisted by his youngest son Vianney who joined the family business in 2010. 45 hectares are under vine, planted on rocky hillsides on limestone soils surround by garrigue, with the red Mourvedre, Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, and the white Bourboulenc, Roussanne and Marsanne. Château d'Angles make a superb range of white, rosé and red very well priced wines. These are charming and precise, well-structured and complex which showcase the exceptional terroir of the La Clape region.
