Cabernet Sauvignon

IGP de Vaucluse Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Terroir

The Domaine des Anges is a small, beautiful vineyard situated at 350 meters on a hillside across the valley from Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence. It benefits from altitude, a variety of soils ranging from calcareous clays to rich stony ferrous, the position of its vineyards and cooling evening breezes in summer.

The vineyards are located on various hillside sites around the domaine.

The grapes are sourced from three of our oldest vineyard blocks, whose soils are well drained calcareous clays and loams, situated on slopes with full exposure to the sun.

Made respecting traditions, going back to Roman times, and nature, through the use of organic practices, which, blended with care and experience, come together in a wine we believe will exceed your expectations.

Assemblage

100 % Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinification

The grapes were handpicked before being crushed and destemmed. Throughout fermentation, temperature was kept at 24°C to preserve the primary fruit flavours. Pumpovers and maceration were conducted in such a manner as to optimize the extraction of soft full tannins with elegant concentration. The blend was aged for a further six months before being lightly filtered and bottled.
