Leon Barral 'Jadis' Faugères, France 2016
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. A real masterpiece with its dominance of Carignan and Syrah from the domaine’s best exposed, southern-facing vineyards. It is delicious, ripe-tasting and intense.
Grapes: 50% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 20% Grenache
Viticulture: Biodynamic, triple a, low sulfur
