Chateau d'Antugnac 'La Closerie des Lys 'Les Fruitieres', France
Readers rated this wine:
Value, earthy, dry.
Here's a value pink, born in the Languedoc and made of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrha and Merlot. It's a pale rusty-salmon colour and offers sour cherry muddled with apricot, cedar, tangerine and smoked herbs and fine peppery spices. It is done dry with good freshness and hinting at orange bitters, herbs and smoked paprika flavours on the palate; the texture is silky.
Pair with grilled fish or medium cheeses, hearty summer salads and chicken or turkey dinners.

Value, earthy, dry.
Here's a value pink, born in the Languedoc and made of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrha and Merlot. It's a pale rusty-salmon colour that suggests cedar and tealeaf, rhubarb, kumquats, powdery brown spices, red currents and crunchy red plum aromas. It's a gastronomic wine; juicy and straightforward, earthy and bone dry.
Pair with grilled fish or medium cheeses, hearty summer salads and chicken or turkey dinners.

Chateau d'Antugnac 'La Closerie des Lys Chardonnay, France
Readers rated this wine:
Delicate, fresh, crisp.
In 1997, school friends the Collovrays and the Terriers began a new adventure by purchasing Chateau d'Antugnac in the Haute Valleee de l'Aude, in the Pyrenees; one of the Languedoc's best regions. Here the terroir makes for fresh wines, while the expertise of the fourth-generation winemakers ensures elegance and finesse.
It comes from 15-year-old vines grown on high elevation clay-limestone soils.
A shy nose of golden fruit and honey, citrus and mineral result in a similarly delicate palate of crisp tree fruits, mineral and citrus. It's primarily fresh, but has a creamy edge and lemony finish. A straightforward but fine everyday white for fish, white meats, creamy sauces.
