This boasts a remarkable sense of invigoration and vibrancy, especially considering how luscious and viscous it is, and the sense of finishing sweetness is well integrated.

Schist with limestone sediments.
Bush pruning (gobelet). Leaf Thinning and pruning. Hand harvest.
Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Addition of alcohol to the must during fermentation. Ageing for 7 months in stainless steel tanks.
The Gallets, owners and winemakers of Domaine le Roc des Anges, have acquired in 2007 a tiny new Domaine, Les Terres de Fagayra, giving Marjorie’s husband, Stephane, a chance to utilize the special talents for Maury that he honed as winemaker while at nearby Mas Amiel. This little known appellation yields wines of great structure and flavour. These are fortified wines made in a similar style to Port. Their three cuvees are stunning. More than good fortified wines they also display freshness, brightness and mineral smokiness. To say that Stephane is off to a flying and successful start would be an understatement.
