New arrivals: Domaine des Anges (Provence, France)

Owned by Kilkenny man Gay McGuinness, with winemaking duties undertaken by Dubliner Ciaran Rooney, Provence winery Domaine des Anges is probably as close as you’ll get to world class ‘Irish’ wines.
The estate is situated on a hillside facing Mont Ventoux, ‘The Giant of Provence’, which rises to almost 2,000m 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. For fans of the Rhône, these wines are a must-try.
Best buy: Domaine des Anges Ventoux White 2011 (€13.49) A delicious blend of Roussanne, Grenache blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc, full, rich and creamy with notes of pears and pineapples leading to a long, lively finish.
