The 22ha estate of Le Roc Des Anges is situated at Montner in the Agly Valley within sight of the Spanish border and is run by Marjorie Gallet. The vines grow in a mosaic of 43 different parcels of mainly schist planted on the north side of the Forca Real mountain overlooking the domaine. The Cotes du Roussillon 'Segna de Cor' ('Blood of the Heart') is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 20% Syrah and is smooth and spicy making this an excellent food wine for rustic stews or flavoursome roasts.
A dark cedar in colour. On the nose scents of cassis and black cherry with a hint of chocolate. On the palate fresh and lively with smoky notes and further spicy black fruit flavours. The tannins are complex yet discreet and the finish fresh and lingering. Try with pot-roasted pigeon with Parmesan polenta, daube de boeuf with black olives or a traditional duck cassoulet
