Scea Vignobles Faux Chateau La Rode


Château La Rode is located in Saint-Philippe d’Aiguilhe, on the slopes of Castillon la Bataille, close to Saint-Emilion. The property has been owned by the same family since 1963. Today it is managed by Christine Faux. Altogether there are 20.7 hectares of vines planted primarily to Merlot. Farmed according to lutte raisonnée principles until 2008, the estate has been certified organic since 2012. The Château La Rode Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux is made from a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from 30 year old vines.

The 2015 Château La Rode Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux is in a lovely place right now. The once youthful tannins have had a few years to soften and integrate. Deep garnet in hue, on the nose it unveils bountiful aromas of lush black plums, black cherry compote, purple popsicle, and bay leaf. The palate is medium bodied with balanced tannins and generous black fruit flavours. A luscious finish lingers on the palate. A good pairing for pulled-pork sandwiches, it is an especially decadent match for rich Gratin Dauphinois (sliced potatoes baked in cream).
