Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor Côtes du Roussillon Villages Red Blend 2014

To my taste, the best year-in, year-out red of French Catalonia. The confit red fruits, pie spice, bramble and wood smoke on the nose make you think it’s going to be a sledgehammer...and then it’s all elegance, filigree and lift on the palate, as it’s only 12.5% alcohol. Simple, non-interventionist vinification, but none of that natural bullshit. Everything in perfect order. #rocdesanges #roussillon #grenache #syrah #carignane — 8 months ago

L'Effet Papillon Carignan Blend 2015

Blackberry. Iron. Schist. Plenty of grip, but lift and freshness to match. Best Effet Rouge to date! #roussillon #carignane #syrah #grenachenoir — 3 years ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor Côtes du Roussillon Villages Red Blend 2016

Achingly pure, filigreed and delineated...not the words you associate with Roussillon wine. But old vines, careful bio viticulture and the daring to harvest at the precise arrival of ripeness (13%) make for a modern-day version of iron fist in velvet glove. And on top of all that, the Catalan qualities shine through more and more with each successive vintage. Fraises, bramble, confits of tiny red fruits and the persistent haunt of black, low pH schist. Extraordinary. #rocdesanges #grenache #carignane #roussillon #catalonia — a year ago

Vin de Pays du Gard Carignan Blend 2007

The best wine I have ever had from the Languedoc, well balanced and very Rhone like in style but with more freshness and floral aromas from the dominance in the blend of the Carignane grape plus to a lesser extent Grenache, Mouvèdre, and Syrah. #Carignane #rocdanglade #remypedreno — 6 years ago
