Winery: Vignobles Rodet Recapet

Vignobles Rodet Recapet Estate Vignobles Rodet is owner of Château Brulesecaille and Château La Gravière in the Cotes de Bourg AOC. Jacques is a viticulture engineer (graduated from Bordeaux Science Agro) specialized in Nature Protection and focuses viticulture. Guillaume (graduated from DUAD Bordeaux) oversees vinification operations in the cellar. Jacques believes in using more natural methods to encourage ripening; he utilizes canopy mangement techniques, removes leaves and thins bunches as necessary. In September 2016 the estate received High Environnemental Value level 3 Certification. This covers mainly four key areas : biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, optimized management of fertilization and water management.

Date Founded: 1840 Owner: Martine and Jacques RODET Winery Philosophy: Making great wines, using both modern winemaking and traditional viticulture. In 1924, The RÉCAPET family bought Château BRULESÉCAILLE. In 1974, the estate was handed down from M. Pierre RÉCAPET to his daughter and son in law, Martine and Jacques RODET. It is now included in a structure named G.F.A. RODET RECAPET. Winery Acreage: 74 acres (30 hectares) Winery Production: 12,000 / 9L cases Varietals Produced: 54% Merlot 25% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Cabernet Franc 4.5% Malbec 7.5% Sauvignon Blanc and Gris Winemaker: Jacques RODET (graduate agricultural engineer) and his son Guillaume. Located in the heart of the Côtes de Bourg region, BrûleSécaille is a 28 hectare vineyard classed "Cru Bourgeois" since 1868.

The name ‘Brulesécaille’ derives from Gascon; “Bruler” means “to burn” and “sécaille” is from the latin “secare” meaning “to cut”. According to tradition, we burn the cut vine branches during pruning. Brulesécaille is situated on a clay limestone outcrop. This particular soil composition dominates the Dordogne valley and allows excellent drainage in winter and spring. The vines enjoy excellent sun exposure, encouraging consistent ripening vintage after vintage.

Because the vineyard survived the particularly hard winter frosts of 1945, 1956 and 1991, there are some significant older vines, up to seventy-five years old. Château BruleSécaille : 23 ha Château La Gravière : 5 ha Château YON St Christophe : 2 ha Every care is taken by Jacques RODET (graduate agricultural engineer) to respect nature, maintaining a biological balance from growth to harvesting in particular by thinning out leaves and excess grapes in order to produce a natural wine. The grapes are picked by hand. Great care is taken with the manual picking over, de-stemming and crushing. The wine needs a long fermentation and maceration period (3 to 5 weeks) in stainless steel tanks, controlled by an automatic temperature monitoring system, to ensure a rich full-bodied wine.
