2011 Le Roc des Anges Segna de Cor Cotes du Roussillon

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 Côthe Rôtie 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 Segna de Cor is comprised of largely "younger" vines (the average age of the vines is over 60 years) of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah, to which the juices of much older vines are blended to add structure to the vibrant, young fruit. Few new barrels are employed at the winery, with most of the wines fermented and aged in cement tanks, and larger "neutral" oak.
