Fashioned from the local Loin de l'Oeil (or Len de l'Oeil) grape variety this is quintessential Southern French White- soft in acidity yest full and luscious with plump citrus and clean white fleshed fruits.

Eric is not on the surface a hippy winemaker, he is an ex-financier, played rugby for France and is rather cool & urbane. But he has made a lifestyle change for himself and his family by buying 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 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.

The wines have been certified by Ecocert since the 2011 vintage so no chemical treatments or fertilisers, yields well below those permitted, traditional vinification in concrete cuves using only natural yeasts & minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.

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.
