The Fabre family took over the Chateau D’Anglès some 7 years ago in the area known as La Clape in the Languedoc. The Languedoc is one of the most exciting areas in the country for talented winemakers to be developing their craft. The sub region of La Clape and Quatourze (incorporating two communal zones of the same name) form two oases of vineyards which lie at the westernmost end of the Coteaux du Languedoc appellation. Over the 7 years, winemaker Eric Fabre, the highly successful Technical Director of Chateau Lafite Rothschild for 8 years, has done an outstanding job of producing extraordinary wines at good values. These wines have already been highly rated and raved about in France by virtually all the major wine critics and publications, and in the UK by Jancis Robinson and Decanter.
The vineyards of La Clape are located around a rocky promontory east of Narbonne, the Massif de la Clape, which was an island until the River Aude silted up in the Middle Ages. The terroir is a mixture of limestone, red clay and gravel. Strict regulations have helped to ensure quality of the wines of La Clape and its recent classification as Grand Cru.
Having re-united 2 vineyards that had been separated for over 100 years, Eric Fabre began a carefully considered planting and grafting program with immense care to maintain the environment and the essential nature of the soil.
- Terroir – mixture of limestone, red clay and gravel
- Growing conditions- some 300 days sunshine every year, drying Northerly winds and night moisture from the sea, hand harvesting.
