With an Irish helping hand.

Domaine des Anges, blanc 2009, Ventoux (Provence, France), 14%, Karwig Wines
In beautiful Provence under the shadow of Mont Ventoux (known as the windy mountain, among other things), winemaker Ciaran Rooney produces this well balanced white in the Irish owned Domaine Des Anges (angels).
The colour is like pale honey and it has a charming nose, a mix of white fruit and floral elements. On the palate, it is fresh and fruity (ripe pear), and surprisingly ample with a good long finish.
This Highly Recommended blend of Roussanne, Grenache blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette, was hand-crafted on the small beautiful hillside vineyard in the South of France, all without the use of herbicides or pesticides, respecting nature and tradition. On the side of the angels!
