Wines from Terroir de la Clape, South of France.
The Château d’Anglès Estate overlooks the Mediterranean from the unique Terroir de La Clape in the South of France.
Hailed as the new Provence in terms of tourism, the Languedoc's reputation for fine and elegant wines is also growing fast, and others too have recognised the exceptional qualities of the exclusive Terroir de la Clape.
Château d’Anglès enjoys ideal wine growing conditions. The vines bask in 300 days of sunshine and benefit from the sea's cool breezes, but it is the surrounding vegetation of the garrigue, including pines, thyme, rosemary, juniper and the aromatic plants which contribute the aromas that give the wines of the Terroir de La Clape their specifically Mediterranean flavour.
The Estate is owned and the wines made, by the renowned winemaker Eric Fabre, who spent 8 years as Technical Director at Chateau Lafite Rothschild and a further 6 years at Chateau La Cardonne which he took from a lesser known Mdoc label to the highest accolades in that time. Judging by the awards and medals now being showered on the wines, it is clear that Eric Fabre is now being justly rewarded at Château d’Anglès.
Although these wines were only introduced to the UK in 2006, they are already being recognised for their exceptional quality and value. They have won a clutch of medals; from the IWSC and Decanter World Wine Awards amongst others, as well as receiving excellent reviews from some of the UK's top wine journalists.

Château d’Anglès produces two ranges of wines, both crafted with the same concern for excellence.
The Classique Range
Expressive, fresh and fruity.
A blend of Syrah and Grenache showing a deep red colour with black highlights. The aroma evokes red fruit flavours and blackcurrant and also pepper and liquorice. Full bodied wine, with smooth and delicate tannins. This red will complement all red meat and cold meat platters.
A wine that blends four varieties for more complexity. The pale yellow aspect reveals an elegant bouquet of spring flowers and fresh spices such as anise or fennel. Lively and balanced, the wine will complement grilled fish with fennel or sauce, grills and white meats and is perfect with a warm goat’s cheese starter or special dishes like sushi and bouillabaisse.
A blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache, it has a brilliant ‘pink flamingo’ colour. Intense and complex nose of white flowers and fruits, citrus fruits and also small fresh red berry aromas. Plentiful mouth with a long aromatic finish balanced by mineral freshness. Delicious with all summer food and asian cuisines, pre-dinner drinks and long summer nights...
Grand Vin Range
Complex, structured and barrel-aged.
From old vines a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Deep red colour with hints of black. Complex and full bodied bouquet with a blend of red and black jammy fruits, vanilla, liquorice and earthy flavours and notes of chocolate/toffee. Fleshy, balanced and structured with lovely freshness and firm silky tannins. Delicious with game, red meat or a good cheese board.
Made from Bourboulenc, Grenache, Roussanne and Marsanne old vines. Pale yellow with golden highlights. Rich and complex nose, with a blend of white fruits, spices and warm brioche flavours. Mouth-filling, structured and buttery taste with an aromatic intensity and a long, fresh finish. Terrific as an aperitif with dry cured ham and marinated sardines. Or fish, veal or poultry in sauce and marvellous with a chocolate desert.
