2010 Le Roc des Anges Carignan Vignes Centenaires "1903"

Merchant Reviews
Majorie Gallet purchased her small domaine in 2001 at the ripe old age of 23. She renamed the estate Roc des Anges (angel's rock) in honor of the white, quartz-veined soil. The farm is about 18 miles from the vibrant, French-Catalan city of Perpignan on the southwest coast of France. Ms. Gallet grew up near Côte RĂ´ôe in the Northern Rhône, doing apprenticeships with Yves Cuilleron and Pierre Gaillard, and studied eonology in Montpellier before setting off on her own. She farms roughly 50 acres of vineyards spread out over 43 different parcels in this dry, stony landscape. All the farming is organic. The Cuvée Centenaires comes from three parcels of Carignan planted in 1903. This is a dense, full-bodied red wine, with perfectly honed structure, capable of developing for another 10-15 years. It pairs well with lamb roasts and other hearty dishes.
