WINERY PROFILE | Chateau d’Angles

“The inky purple 2012 La Clape Classique is an outstanding blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre. It exhibits plenty of sweet red fruits, new leather, spice and licorice to go with a silky, easy drinking, yet elegant and balanced profile on the palate. Completely destemmed and brought up all in vats, it should drink nicely for 4-5 years. It also represents a smoking value. 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.”
