Marjorie Gallet is the young woman behind Domaine Le Roc des Anges and she brings real commitment and passion to this far south west corner of France. She has about 22 ha/54 acres around the village of Montner in the upper Agly valley, a very special corner of schist around Maury. This white (Vielles Vignes)is a blend of old Grenache Gris and Macabeu vines fermented in foudres. The nose picks up notes of white and yellow flowers, the fruit flavours are particular and delicate, the finish mineral and persistent.
Domaine Parent is based in Pommard (Burgundy, France) and was founded in 1803. Today it is headed by two sisters, Anne & Catherine Parent, who continue the family tradition of winegrowers that originated in the 17th century. The Domaine consists of 10 hectares that produce mostly red wines from the Cote de Beaune.
from the importer: "Les Choisilles is a cuvée, usually blended from old vines in the vineyards of Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos au Renard. It’s named after a type of black flint called (you guessed it) choisille. Les Choisilles is a concentrated, focused dry wine that often needs several years to develop."
Vacheron's rare experimental franc de pied cuvee -- planted on original rootstock in 2008. The wine is outside the village's appelation laws, thus Vin de France, and is officially non-vintage, though the fruit came from the 2015 harvest.
