Eric is a very sympatic guy, a farmer, humble as well. Eric was in Copenhagen to present his wines at the tasting I had with my friend. Roucas Toumba means "the fallen rock" and was the name of the Bouletin family house in documents datig from the 18 th century.
3 wines produced, no weed killers or chemical fertilizers, short pruning, debudding and green harvest to remain as close as possible to the potential of the vineyard.
Eric´s wines are sold in Denmark
USA, Belgium, Asia and France.
"Pichot Roucas" Vin de Pays de Mediteannee 2007 rouge. Syrah, Grenache and Carignan.
"Les Grands Chemins" Vin de Table de France 2007 rouge. Grenache, Carignan and 10 % Syrah. My favorite of the 3 wines.
