An truly enchanting cuvée. More info

Originally intended to be pulled up after the parcel was bought in 2010, these Muscat vines found favour in the eyes of Marjorie and Stéphane Gallet when they got to taste it. Far from the usual aromas expected of this grape variety, they found a perfect expression of the terroir in which the vines grow. They decided to keep the vines, caring for them through organic methods. Its light, yellow colour brings an instant finesse. Its nose gives off heady notes of fruit and spices. The palate is marked by a bitterness and salinity found also in the domain’s other white cuvées. It can be served as an aperitif or alongside a dish like asparagus in a vinaigrette. It can be kept in the cellar for a few years before enjoying.

IGP Côtes Catalanes Roc des Anges Chamane Marjorie et Stéphane Gallet serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Brandade de morue à la nîmoise, Salade de Homard bleu, Verrines de la mer.

Information about domain 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. 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.
