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.

"Les Restanques de Cabassoles" AOC Vacqueyras 2006 rouge. Grenaches Vieilles Viggnes ( 80 years old wineyard )Syrah, Mourvedre and 3% various white varietals.
