WINERY PROFILE | Chateau d’Angles

“A step up, the 2013 La Clape Grand Vin Blanc is 40% Bourboulenc (from 80-year-old bush vines), 20% Roussanne, 20% Marsanne and 20% Grenache Blanc that was fermented and aged in 30% new 225-Liter barrels. It has lots of lemon and buttered citrus to go with a medium-bodied, pure, clean and classy style on the palate. While this saw plenty of lees contact and stirring, it still has beautiful purity of fruit and, certainly, there’s no loss of focus or tension. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming year or two. This was a fine set of releases from proprietors Eric and Vianney Fabre. Looking first at their whites, these 2013s showed much better than the 2012s last year. As to the reds, I liked the 2011s from barrel last year, but they weren’t presented this go around. The 2012s showed beautifully and both were outstanding.”
