About this WINE

Domaine d'Antugnac

Domaine d'Antugnac

Jean-Luc Terrier, owner of Domaine des Deux Roches in the Maconnais, bought Domaine d'Antugnac 4 years ago. It is situated just south of Limoux in the Languedoc region and one of the appeals for Jean Luc was that Chardonnay and Merlot vines had already been planted there 24 years previously. There are 50 hectares of vineyards,with a high average vine age of 30 years, well situated at altitudes of up to 500 metres above sea level. The extra elevation is crucial as it lengthens the ripening period of the grapes thus ensures more rounded fruit characteristics in the wines.

Both black and white grapes are grown, though being the true Burgundian he is it is Chardonnay that Jean-Luc really excels at producing elegant smooth examples, which combine richness and intensity of fruit with marvellous poise and balance.

Syrah/Shiraz

Syrah/Shiraz

A noble black grape variety grown particularly in the Northern Rhône where it produces the great red wines of Hermitage, Cote Rôtie and Cornas, and in Australia where it produces wines of startling depth and intensity. Reasonably low yields are a crucial factor for quality as is picking at optimum ripeness. Its heartland, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, consists of 270 hectares of steeply terraced vineyards producing wines that brim with pepper, spices, tar and black treacle when young. After 5-10 years they become smooth and velvety with pronounced fruit characteristics of damsons, raspberries, blackcurrants and loganberries.

It is now grown extensively in the Southern Rhône where it is blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre to produce the great red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape and Gigondas amongst others. Its spiritual home in Australia is the Barossa Valley, where there are plantings dating as far back as 1860. Australian Shiraz tends to be sweeter than its Northern Rhône counterpart and the best examples are redolent of new leather, dark chocolate, liquorice, and prunes and display a blackcurrant lusciousness.

South African producers such as Eben Sadie are now producing world- class Shiraz wines that represent astonishing value for money.
