 "A superb biodynamic wine."

  • Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon - France
  • Terroirs: Faugeres
  • Grape: Mourvèdre (80%), Syrah (20%)

Tasting notes: Fine and delicate aromas of red and black fruits such as raspberry, black currant, licorice. Voluminous, spicy and tasty delicacy of a generous fruit, a nice underlying freshness, civilized tannins and a long, elegant finish.

Didier Barral represents the thirteenth generation to grow grapes in the tiny hamlet of Lenthéric, within the confines of the Faugères appellation deep in the heart of the Languedoc. Domaine Léon Barral is a beacon of revolutionary winegrowing: shortly after founding the domaine, Didier decided that biodynamic practices were the best choice for farming his thirty hectares of vineyards. Léon Barral has pioneered numerous innovative agronomic techniques with the goal of establishing his vineyards as a self-sustaining ecosystem. 

His workers of choice? A team of twenty cows, horses, and pigs that roam the vineyards during winter, grazing the cover crops while adding natural fertilizer to the soil. Without compacting the earth the way a tractor would, the animals effectively cultivate healthy microbial activity, bringing mushrooms, ants, ladybugs, earthworms, and other essential life forms, which add important nutrients while aerating the soil. This is the concept of sustainability at its finest, where the ecosystem thrives from the symbiotic relationships Didier has fostered amid the vines.
