Chateau d'Anglès 'Grand Vin', La Clape, Languedoc, France 2010

from 14.50

Even in its appearance, this is a very well-groomed wine. A deep, glowing crimson, the colour of a rake's smoking jacket. If it were a chap, it would have spent the morning having a wet shave at Geo.F.Trumper before wandering over to Savile Row for a fitting at Henry Poole.  On the nose it is generous with its dark and inviting Mediterranean flavours, and oak in all the right places adding gravitas. It’s not just bravado, there is complexity here as well as decadence. Blueberries, sautéd plum skins and dark cherries are illuminated by top notes of warm spices, cocoa, cured meat, wood polish and a hint of tobacco. The palate is rich, sumptuous yet lithe with the dark core pierced by brighter notes of raspberry and tangy blackcurrant fruit. With its fruit-soaked and velvety tannins, the wine slips down with the gratifying ease of a snooker ball rolling serenely towards its pocket. This is a dashing and polished southern French blend (55% Mourvèdre, 30% Syrah and 15% Grenache). I wouldn't hesitate in enjoying it now, but it will certainly keep for another 5 or 6 years. Enjoy with pan-fried venison, duck breast or roast beef. 14.5% alc. Drink now – 2021.
