Appellation: Côtes du Roussillon
Varieties: Grenache Gris, Maccabeu
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.
Llum is a blend of Grenache Gris and Maccabeu, grown in eleven small parcels of 70 to 100 year-old vines.
In the glass, the wine has a limpid, saturated lemon yellow color with flashes of pale green and bright gold. There is a fleeting suggestion of hyacinth under the ripe green apples and Asian pears, along with fresh cut grass, chamomile, and crystallized honey on the nose.
On the palate, the wine is vinous and full-bodied, with gorgeous flavors that echo and magnify the beautiful floral nose, all seasoned with satisfying saline minerality.
