The Roc des Anges estate was created in 2001 by Stéphane and Marjorie Gallet. The couple has a passion for the land, Stéphanecomes from Normandy and Marjorie from Côte-Rôtie. They decided to start an agricultural engineer training course before falling in love with this piece of land from Roussillon, "wild and open". They started with 10 hectares, made up of a few hundred-year-old vines acquired through the local cooperative cellars. The Roc des Anges estate is rapidly expanding thanks to the successful purchase of further plots, their choice is justified by the low yield of their soil devoid of clay. Their first four cuvées, totalling 10,000 bottles, are easily sold thanks to professional wine fairs. Stéphane Gallet worked the first 8 years at the region's leading estate Mas Amiel and did not take up full-time work at the Roc des Anges until 2008. Time reveals and refines the personality of their terroirs, which amounted to 40 hectares in 2016. The conversion into biodynamics of the Roc des Anges estate begins from their first vintage and continues year after year, plot by plot. They finally obtained their certification in 2010.
Dark cedar in colour. Aromas of blackcurrant, cassis and dark chocolate on the nose. These are joined by black cherry and spicy notes on the palate. Ripe tannins and a very smooth mouthfeel make this an excellent match with rustic stews and roast meats.
