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.

Review:

"Based on 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, the 2015 Chateau Brule Secaille Grande Reserve Cotes de Bourg spent a year in 40% American oak, with one-third being new. Black fruits, spicy oak, underbrush, and cedar notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced 2015 that has solid mid-palate depth and ample fruit. It’s a fleshy, charming effort that has loads of character."

Review:

- Washington Post (September 2019, Snag this juicy, French white wine for just $9), "EXCELLENT" - "GREAT VALUE""Gascony grows most of its grapes for distillation into brandy, but the table wines can be delicious and cheap. This juicy white blend is 80 percent colombard, familiar to wine drinkers of a certain age as the mainstay grape of American chablis. The rest is gros manseng and ugni blanc. You won’t want to waste time contemplating this crowd pleaser, because you’ll want to snag another pour before it’s gone. Alcohol by volume: 12 percent. - Dave McIntyre"

   

Trouillard Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

The House of Trouillard has incredible holdings on the Côtes de Blancs. The vineyard's rating average 94-95, just one of the reasons the Blanc de Blancs has such incredible raciness and elegance. It is a Cuvée of eleven different Crus in the Reims Mountain, the Côtes de Blancs and the Sézannaise region and is the specialty of the house.


Trouillard Blanc de Blancs Brut NV is made of 100% Chardonnay with a green-gold color, characteristic of Chardonnay, and with fine persistent bubbles. This wine has an aroma that jumps out of the glass and is very inviting. On the nose there are seductive scents of warm almond croissant and honey, lightened by some floral notes. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth and lively with a very refined fruitiness and a touch of smokiness typical of wines from the Côtes des Blancs. The elegance and subtlety of the Chardonnay are to be especially appreciated as an aperitif, and nicely accompanies shellfish and fish. 
It has become the favorite of those who know Champagne Trouillard.


Reviews:

"A blend of grapes from the Aube and the Marne Valley, this ripe wine shows the structure of Pinot Noir. The fruit's richness balances the low dosage to give an almost bone-dry wine that is full, fruity and that could age further in bottle. - ROGER VOSS"

- Wine Enthusiast (December 2019), 91 pts

"Aromatic, offering ripe fruit and yeast notes, this is backed by firm acidity, with a lively bead and flavors of Golden Delicious apple, white peach, ginger and whole-grain toast. Drink now through 2018. 2,500 cases made. –AN"
