Het motto van Eric Lepine is ‘Fruor ergo sum’, te vertalen als: ik geniet dus ik besta.
Daarin kunnen wij ons wel vinden.
The vines of Château de Rhodes, some of which are up to 70 years old, are planted on moderately sloped land with deep chalky clay soils. The planting policy equally balanced between red and white grapes, combines varieties that are eminently archetypal of Gaillac (such as Fer Servadou, Duras, Mauzac, Loin de l’œil) with Syrah, Cabernet Franc or also Merlot.
The exceptional terroir of Château de Rhodes and the care lavished upon the wine-making process enables the estate to produce red wines with red fruit and spicy aromas that are good for keeping, elegant and aromatic sweet white wines as well as finely-crafted sparkling wines.
