Un Vent de Folie has the sure hand of Mark Hoddy stamped all over it! He has an unswerving passion for the wines of the Roussillon – a fascination for the power and intensity of flavours from the tiny knots of fruit on the vines that dare call themselves grapes. Whenever he’s absent from Le Chai, you know exactly where you’ll find him – on the rugged slopes of the Roussillon. Maury is the finest area for grapes – its slate terroir and gnarled old vines, buffeted by the wind and scorched by sun, produce yields of around 8 hectolitres per hectare. Grenache with a touch of Syrah and Carignan, the wine’s been aged for over a year in French oak at Le Chai. A regular past Gold medalist, it’s very big and warming – enjoy with hearty meat dishes.
