Estate: 

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.

Tasting Notes:

This wine is harvested from 3.5 hectares of Carignan planted in 1903.

Carignan is definitely a warm, dry climate grape variety perfectly suited to fill typical southern wines with harmony and elegance.

On the lean and well drained schist soils of the Roc des Anges, Carignan finds a tailor-made terroir: fruit, spice, fleshiness, character, and minerality are beautifully expressed.

Aeration of the wine is essential to fully appreciate the aromatic bouquet.
