Domaine Roc des Anges, Côtes de Roussillon – BKWine Pick

Marjorie Gallet was only 23 when she in 2001, without a penny in her pocket, decided to settle in Roussillon to become winegrower. She had an opportunity to buy an old property of 10 ha thirty kilometres north of Perpignan and has added some land since so she now has 20 ha. But she only makes 45,000 bottles each year since her yields are miniscule, not more than 16 hl/ha. This is, she says, because the vines are old and the soil is very poor, and the climate is hot and very windy. Perhaps we need to add to that her ambition to make very concentrated and well constructed wines? Try for instance the Roc des Anges 2006 Segna de Cor. A full-bodied, powerful wine but that retains a lot of fruit mixed with aromas of chocolate, tobacco, leather and ripe grapes.
