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 2019 is incredibly bright- a terrific blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane, harvested from ancient parcels in the Roussilon. It’s vibrant with aromas of wild black raspberries and sweet spices. The mid palate is rich and velvety, with a core of sweet black fruit that finishes fresh, long and silky.
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.
