This fruity and fresh, 100% Carignan is vinified to retain its pure aromas.

More info

This 100% Carignan was grown using biodynamic methods on old schist soils which are clay and silica-rich. It was fermented in concrete tanks and aged for 8 months in wooden vats. This is why its deep ruby-red hue delivers notes of fresh fruit, and intense flowers such as violets. It is pleasingly concentrated and powerful on the palate, with supple tannins. It has a particularly long finish and is a perfect pairing for robust dishes such as game.

About the Producer Roc des Anges

This domaine, established in 2001 by Marjorie Gallet, has a very evocative name. Located in Montner, in the Roussillon, it boasts 25 hectares of old grape varieties (Carignan, Grenache, Maccabeu, and Syrah) which exude depth and character. Struck by the Roussillon region’s “violent nature”, and charmed by the diversity of its terroirs, she is forging ahead with her husband Stéphane, motivated by the clear conviction that “nature is fundamental, the place confers its energy to the wine, the Roussillon light brightens without burning”. Biodynamic principles are applied in order to produce wines in her image, “at once strong and elegant”. Although the region experiences high summer temperatures, the grapes remain unscathed. The presence of old schist allows the vines to develop long roots and tap cooler depths. Yields are limited to 17hl/ha, making these wines intensely concentrated. Since 2008, Marjorie Gallet has been assisted by Stéphane and they tend the parcels organically (having achieved certification in 2011) and biodynamically. In the cellar, the aim is to retain as much of the freshness of the fruit as possible using simple but precise ageing techniques. This fine, innovative domaine is definitely one to check out.
