2014 ROC D'ANGLADE VIN DE PAYS DU GARD BLANC
This unusual Languedoc white composed of 100% Chenin Blanc from Remy Pedreno combines richness and freshness in perfect harmony. Notes of apple, citrus blossom and white flowers mingle with creaminess and hints of flinty minerals, gaining intensity with air. Elegan and very versatile, this is drinking beautifully now but will evolve gracefully in bottle for years to come. Enjoy with seafood, shellfish, grilled white meat and pork, charcuterie and creamy cheeses.
The village of Langlade is located near the city of Nimes in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Its wines were once on par with the great wines of Burgundy, and sought after until the 19th century (they were even served in the court of Louis XIV in Versailles). Tragically, in the 1850s, the Phyloxera epidemic that swept Europe detroyed all the vines in this little village.
Fast forward to the 1990s...local Remy Pedreno was inspired to change his career from computers to winemaking and produced his first vintage in his parent's garage in 1999. In a twist of luck he captured the attention for French distributor Philippe Puech who represented the top wines in the Languedoc. Philippe saw great potential in Remy and the quality of the wines. He bought Remy's first barrel and the rest is history. The wines form Roc d’Anglade are now listed in some of the world's best restaurants – including 3* Michelin restaurants.
Remy works a total of 10 hectares, a plot characterized by chalky soils and pieces of limestone mixed with and dark Silicieous clay, reminiscent of the top crus of Burgundy. He works organically and intuitively, perferring feeling over lab testing. Each plot is aged separately in large wooden vats in his underground cellar, and then blended before bottling. He only makes three wines (white, red and rose) that are all expressive of the land's unique terroir with elegance, complexity and freshness.
