A charming minerality and a silky mouthfeel make this one of Roc des Anges' biggest successes. More info
The Maccabeu vines were planted in 1947 on shallow schist soil in the midst of a breathtaking landscape. Planted next to an old fir tree (‘pi vell' in Catalan), facing the Pic de Burgarach, the vines draw all the energy and minerality from the poor soils. Marjorie and Stéphane Gallet grow their vines biodynamically, the grapes are harvested by hand before a careful sorting process. The wine has a bright, yellow colour and the nose gives off aromas of yellow fruits and white flowers. The palate is vibrant with a salty hint and remarkable finesse. You can pair this wine with any kind of delicate dish, it goes nicely with salmon for example. You can enjoy it tomorrow or in ten years time, and it will be wonderful!
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.
