Using 60-year-old vines that have become part of the land, this wine really shows off its terroir.

Aromas of fruitcake and fresh spice come rolling off this wine, even sat at arm’s reach from you. With really concentrated, yet pure red fruit flavour, this is a fantastic wine with food. Or, left to breathe for a few hours, it’ll be a fantastic way to watch the sun go down.

Château Rochecolombe, located near Bourg Saint Andéol in the southern Rhône, has been owned and run by the same Belgian family for four generations. Today it is Roland Terrasse, the grandson, who has his hands on the reins. Originally purchased by Roland's grand-father Robert Herberigs in 1925, the estate was primarily focused on the cultivation of apricots, with only a small acreage of vines. Just after the Second World war, Robert's son Gilbert decided to convert entirely to vineyards. During the first 15 years all the fruit was delivered to the local Saint Andéol co-operative and to a local negociant. Since then the production has been safeguarded solely for their own production. The focus is on quality throughout, both in the organically-certified vineyards and the cellar. The estate has been certified organic by Agence Bio (AB) for 10 years. Today there are 30 hectares of vines in production, planted on three different soil types, but all a variation on the classic Rhône clay/limestone theme. Facing south-east, the vines benefit from maximum sun exposure. Roland's red wines are based on Grenache and Syrah, with Viognier the focus for the white. Low-yielding old vines contribute greatly to the depth of flavour and intrinsic quality of Roland's two red wine cuvées. His team are dedicated to ensuring that the wines express their southern Rhone heritage to the best advantage possible.
