Chevalier de Rhodes Rouge, Château de Rhodes

£14.00

Properly interesting organic, regional French red

Château de Rhodes is in the village of Boissel, close to Gaillac in South West France. Proprietor Eric Lépine is an urbane ex-financier who used to play rugby for France. In 2002, he bought this 20 hectare estate on some of the best vineyard land in Gaillac, covering three distinct terroirs: the terraces of the left bank of the River Tarn, the Cordais plateau, and the slopes of the right bank of the river where lies the château itself. The estate has been Ecocert certified organic since the 2011 vintage. His commitment to organics is a choice for the benefit of his family, as he believes it to be the most sustainable way to look after his land and it helps him to produce wines that are truly authentic.

This wine is a blend of local variety Duras, along with Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It is soft, with wild bramble fruit and a touch of herbiness on the nose. The palate is grippy but approachable.
