A small-grained Muscat planted on schist, bewitching; fresh fruit, sweet spices, minerality, complex, refined palate. The saltiness plays with the bitters and the singular charm adds to the pleasure. Remarkable!
Marjorie Gallet is a brilliant winemaker who, in just a few vintages, and with the help of her husband Stéphane, has managed to impose a personal tone on a production made up of a majority of old Grenache and Carignan grapes.
The wines have rapidly progressed in finesse, while remaining very Catalan in their expression, and the cultivation of the vines has naturally taken an organic direction. If the 1903 vintage (100% carignan) has contributed greatly to the reputation of the estate, Iglesia Vella and Oca in white, are already at the same level.
The range is constantly expanding with new, stunning wines, and the rise in power here is phenomenal.

The Domain Le Roc des AngesOne of the great rising stars of the French wine industry...
Marjorie Gallet created the Roc des Anges estatein 2001 in this magnificent region of Roussillon, in Montner, on a singular quartz vein where 25 hectares of old Grenache, Carignan, Maccabeu and Syrah express themselves to give birth to wines of very high quality, with a Catalan expression.
The terroir of ancient schist favours the rooting of the vines and preserves the coolness during the heat peaks. The natural yield of these old vines, which are on average 65 years old, is barely 17hl/ha, which gives an exceptional concentration...
The young and no less talented winemaker, joined in 2008 by Stéphane, adds the Terres de Faygara de Maury estate to her production
The Roc des Anges estate has always had an organic orientation and, since 2011, biodynamic viticulture has been a natural choice.
In the cellar, everything is done to preserve this very rich raw material, with notably a meticulous sorting and maturing as simple as possible but precise
All this requirement is naturally felt at the tasting in all the Roc des Anges cuvées, whether it is for the old vines in white and in red, or with the fabulous white Iglesia Vella of a precision and a formidable length
Equipped with a brand new cellar, this reference estate has not yet finished dazzling us...
