Winemakers
Eric Fabre’s wealth of experience, including eight years as technical director at Château Lafite Rothschild, enabled him to overcome the considerable challenges awaiting him at Château d’Angles. Restructuring the vineyard was high priority in order to balance the assembly of traditional grape varieties such as Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache or Carignan for the reds and Bourboulenc, Roussanne and Marsanne for the whites. The Great Wines of Château d’Angles reflect the values held by Eric and Christine Fabre.It is now Vianney’s turn as the youngest of the Fabre siblings to follow in the family tradition. His experience brings together all aspects of wine-making, from his diploma in wine-growing and making in Bordeaux, followed by a top business school in Paris. After 5 years traveling to the four corners of the world for Bollinger Champagne, he decided to join the family business in 2010, and play his own part in developing the Château d’Anglès wines, taking up the mantle of another generation of winemaking in the Fabre family and keeping alive their secret for perfect harmony. A wine-lover and enthusiast, Vianney is a true ambassador for the values of the estate, which he upholds in his role in international sales.
About the Winery
More than a thousand years later, the Languedoc was brought under the rule of the French King Louis VIII and governed by the Baillys d’Anglès from 1226. In the following centuries the property endured Revolution, division and the passing from owner to owner until the Fabre family were finally able to reunite Château d’Anglès under its original family name at the beginning of the 21st century. The vines at Château d’Anglès enjoy a unique combination of natural elements; basked in sunshine for 300 days a year, refreshed by the Mediterranean breeze, deeply rooted in the hostile rocky, limestone soils and enveloped in the surrounding aromatic vegetation known as ‘garrigue’. This exceptional terroir expresses its very best under the watchful eye of Eric Fabre, whose talent and experience permeate each stage of the winemaking process, from hand-picking and careful selection, to patient nursing in French oak barrels and painstaking blending. The resulting wines are a perfect harmony of mature and fresh, generous and precise, powerful and structured… testament to the reputation of Château d’Anglès, which is lauded by the international press, experts and wine lovers across the globe.
