Cuvée presentation

This cuvée takes its name from from the village church next to the parcel (Iglesia Vella in Catalan). Grenache Blanche is perfect for expressing the schist terroir where the vines grow. This single varietal wine is one of the domain’s biggest successes and is characterised by its minerality. It has a crystalline, yellow appearance and its nose is energetic. Citrus notes are present from the outset followed by hints of white fruit. This wine is superbly classy and shouldn’t be kept for an aperitif. Rather, it will pair nicely with poultry or white fish. It can be aged in the cellar for 5-10 years, and this will allow it to develop aromas of honey and ripe fruit.

Information about domainRoc 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.
