2014 harvest report from Château d’Anglès

IMG_3686

Talking about this vintage 2014, we are quite enthusiastic at this early stage. We have never seen such beautiful Syrahs at Anglès (a true fruit complexity and tanins that are so fine). The overall health status of the grapes was very good, even with the persistant sea wind… I believe the “effeuillage” done at the end of august helped a lot. We decided however to speed up the picking after the rain last week, as we got 120 mm of rain (1/3 of our annual rain falls) and we know the grapes would inflate after 4 – 5 days and could crack allowing Botrytis to develop. So we finished with the Bourboulenc as always, in perfect shape and juices are showing already great freshness and acidity.

Languedoc Outsiders at ProWein 2013

LANGUEDOC OUTSIDERS AT PROWEIN

The Outsiders are a group of Languedoc-Roussillon wine producers, and a number of them will be pouring their wines at this year’s PROWEIN (Düsseldorf, March 24-26).

About the Outsiders

Working in the south of France, these maverick winegrowers are creating exciting wines which make full use of the region’s highly diverse soil types, climatic conditions and grape varieties.

The group’s members come from the UK, Ireland, Scotland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, the USA – and Bordeaux. What they have in common is a conscious decision to relocate to this part of France to start a career in wine, recognising the potential of Languedoc-Roussillon’s terroir.

A few of the Outsiders were involved in making or marketing others’ wines, before crossing the line and becoming producers themselves. However, most of the Outsiders do not come from winemaking backgrounds; the group includes members with careers in business management, advertising, sales and marketing, property construction, investment banking and finance.

Coming from “outside” means having an alternative perspective, which can sometimes translate into doing things a little differently. Thus, the group organises tastings with a twist (as evidenced by their recent “pictures instead of tasting notes” campaign, which they have presented in London, Montpellier and Paris).

The Languedoc Outsiders at ProWein are:

Jon & Liz Bowen (Domaine Sainte Croix, in Fraïssé des Corbières http://saintecroixvins.com/) Hall 7.1 A 11-08
