Owned by Kilkenny man, Gay McGuinness, Domaine des Anges is situated on a hillside facing Mont Ventoux, which rises to 1912m in altitude. The mountain has a profound influence on the climate of the vineyards with cool evening breezes refreshing the vines in summer after the day’s intense heat, and so enabling the vines to maintain high natural acids and elegant tannins. The Domaine is managed by Florent Chave.
The wine is a blend of 30% Roussanne, 30% Grenache blanc, 20% Clairette and 20% Bourboulenc. A nose of pears and lemons with a touch of tropical fruits. A full, rich, creamy, well-balanced palate with notes of pears and pineapples leading to a long finish, both lively and elegant.
