Grapes: 33% Braucol 33% Duras 33% Syrah
Nicely balanced. Soft with wild fruit and a touch of herbiness on the nose and a grippy but approachable palate.
CHATEAU DE RHODES is in the village of Boissel, close to Gaillac in South West France. The vineyards of the south-west are some of France’s most ancient and home to its most varied collection of indigenous grape varieties plus a host of talented, sometimes extreme, organic winemakers enthralled by the possibilities these unusual varieties present.
Eric's commitment to organics is a choice for the benefit of his family and he believes this to be the most sustainable way to look after his land and produce authentic wines. He also heads up The BIOboys, a group of like-minded organic producers based in the south-west.
The wines have been certified by Ecocert since the 2011 vintage, so no chemical treatments or fertilisers are used. Yields are well below those permitted, and traditional vinification takes place in concrete cuves using only natural yeasts. Then 2 years’ aging in cuve for the reds, with a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.
We love these Gaillac Wines, and are sure you will too.
