Chateau d'Angles 'Classique' White la Clape 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

Famille E. Fabre has produced a very decent white based on Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc nuanced and complicated by the presence of Roussane. This wine has some of the stemmy bitterness of certain Rhone and Languedoc wines (it is from the acclaimed La Clape sub-region of the latter), but this is typical and does not much detract. Acidity is good, and the wine should age up to an additional 3 years. Nice light white fruit and herbal tea on the nose with gooseberry and almond on the palate. Good value in the duty free shops of Shiphol Airport in Amsterdam (about 9 dollars US). Recommended by Hugh Johnson and recommended by little ol' me. 88 points.
