Marjorie and Stéphane Gallet are a tag-team husband and wife duo that organically farm together in Maury in France. They make a number of wines, with the reds primarily a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignane. Their greatest goal of winemaking is to bring a sense of place to the glass from the vine.
By helping the local cooperative’s growers understand the benefits of sustainable farming, limited yields and harvesting before the grapes are over-mature, Marjorie and Stéphane are aiming to raise the general quality of wine in their appellation.
The wines of Roc des Anges frequent the lists of some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants of Europe. The 2017 is no exception- a terrific blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane, harvested from the iron rich soil just outside of Rivesaltes at the base of Pyrenees. The nose is all about black fruits and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is so fresh, pure and elegant. It’s a great candidate for a house wine, it will go with just about anything and at this price, buying a case is a no-brainer.

Great with grilled foods, roasted vegetables or soups.
