Rhône Valley organic mixed caseRegular price €104.00
A mixed case of organically produced red and white wines from Château de Manissy in the southern Rhône Valley.
This is an organic mixed case with four different wines from a single estate in the southern Rhône. The reds of the Côtes du Rhône style are familiar and reliable, but the wines named for individual villages all have their own styles, and in this mix there are two red and two white bottles from Lirac, in our view a village appellation that represents really good value. These are polished, beautifully made wines, and the full or half case would make a very impressive gift for the devotee of organic wines.
By spring 2009, the entire estate at Château de Manissy was in conversion to organic agriculture. Winemaker Florian André explains why he chose to adopt the organic approach:
‘A variety of reasons led us to offer organic wines. Firstly, I noticed that the products I was using were becoming less and less effective—and were pollutants in any case—when our first responsibility should be to care about the land. That’s why I decided to start going organic, despite knowing that conversion to full organic status takes three years and demands much more work in the vineyard.
Ever since we took over the property from the Holy Family Fathers, we have farmed with the greatest possible respect for the environment, and we have always followed the lunar calendar in our work. Going organic was the logical final step, and we now use no chemicals or weedkillers in the vines.
I am well aware of the consumer passion for organics, a genuine desire for healthier products. Organic agriculture is good for the soil, for the planet, for our health and for that of our children. I became a father in 2009, and could not think of a better time to put our organic ambitions into practice.Rich, supple Côtes du Rhône red
