Roc des Anges was founded in February 2001. A Carignan vine planted on a vein of quartz is behind the origin of the name. A white soil surrounded by black schist: The Lieu-dit is called "Roc Blanc", which translates to White Rock.
Angels were chosen to symbolize this vein of quartz and Roc Blanc became Roc des Anges.
A pure Grenache Gris wine, harvested from an 80 year old parcel and from vines scattered throughout the Carignan 1903 parcels. One of these parcels is located a few meters from the "old church", Iglesias Vella in Catalan.
Fermented and aged in 3 year old barrels of 500L, Iglesia Vella is crafted much like Vielles Vignes Blanc, with greater purity, precision, and finish.
