Domaine des Anges White
Cotes de Ventoux
Domaine des Anges is situated on a hillside facing Mont Ventoux, “The Giant of Provence”, 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.
Making the wine of angels

It is not just a winery run by Irish people learning the ropes, this is Irish winemaking genius, creating some of the world’s finest wines - just as David and Catherine O’Brien are doing at Chateau Vignelaure, Lochlann Quinn is doing at classed growth Chateau de Fieuzal and Kilkenny native David Fennell is doing at Margaux classed growth, Chateau duTertre.

This white wine in the entry level outshines the red. With its traditional Marsanne and Rousanne blend fermented in oak, it is wonderfully exotic, oily and lightly spicy at the finish.
