Winemaking

Native Gaillac varieties Loin de l'Oeil (full bodied and fruity with modest acidity), Mauzac Blanc (late ripening and crisp) and Ondenc (perfumed, full bodied and with high acidity) are machine harvested when ripe and are then fermented in concrete tanks to maintain cool temperatures (16°C) without malolactic fermentation. Since the 2011 harvest, Château de Rhodes has only worked with native yeasts to preserve the typicity of its terroir in its wines. A single filtration just before bottling retains the aromas and balance of the wine.


Tasting note

From 3 hectares of vines grown on clay-limetone soil, this energetic and organic Gaillac Blanc has a fresh, herbal nose with savoury and mineral notes and rich, round citrus flavours on the palate paired with gentle acidity.
