Wine Tasting of Bordeaux Wines from Château des Mille Anges

Château des Mille Anges red wine

At the APVSA wine tasting in Washington, I enjoyed sampling a couple of wines from Château des Mille Anges. The property is located in the Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux AOC. According to the unique wine bottle label, the Château des Mille Anges is referred to as the “House of a thousand angels.”

Red Wines

The Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux St. Germande Graves 2012 was was a red wine that retails for 9 euros. The wine was a light opaque red/purple color. The wine was light bodied with bold tannins. This dry wine offered dark fruit notes.

The AOC Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux Mozart 2012 was a translucent dark purple with red color. This wine was full bodied with dark red fruit notes that reminded one of black cherries and blackberries. The aftertaste was long and tannins were on the finish.

Since purchasing the property 1994, Mrs. Heather van Ekris has added to and expanded the vineyard and facilities. 

Today the vineyards is 30 hectares (74 acres). The vineyard includes the grape varieties:  Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris.

History of the Property

Prior to purchase by Mrs. Van Ekris, the Château des Mille Anges was the Sisters of the Assumption convent. The nuns of the convent grew grapes for Mass wine and for eating. The convent was also a place for children to be educated as well as protected.  Eventually the convent was closed due to World War II. According to the Château des Mille Anges website, “The name ‘Château des Mille Anges’ is in memory of the little children who were taught here.”

Today Château des Mille Anges is looking for importers/distributors for their products in the United States.
