Soft but wild fruit with a touch of herbiness on the nose and a grippy but approachable palate.

Château 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 is not on the surface a hippy winemaker, he is an urbane ex-financier, played rugby for France! He bought this 20 hectare estate on some of the best terroir in Gaillac: the south-facing Coteaux on the right bank of the River Tarn. His commitment to organics is a choice for the benefit of his family and is, he believes, 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. Ecocert certified since the 2011 vintage so no chemical treatments or fertilisers, yields well below those permitted, traditional vinification in concrete cuves using only natural yeasts then 2 years’ aging in cuve for the reds and minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.

Braucol or Fer servadou, Syrah and Duras in equal proportions, no oak, soft but wild fruit with a touch of herbiness on the nose and a grippy but approachable palate, nicely balanced and very digestible.

Try grilled meats, duck breast or cheeses.

A great surprise

It is a superb wine! The nose is fresh, with notes of ripe fruit, liquorice, spices and garrigue. The palate is dense, round, with well balanced tannins. A nice spicy finish.
Very surprised at the quality for the price, it's a great value. I highly recommend it!
