2010 Faugeres "Valiniere" Leon Barral
With a team of twenty cows, horses, and pigs that graze the cover crops in and around the vineyards. Didier Barral farms thirty hectares of vineyards, incorporating biodynamic practices deep in the heart of the Languedoc. In this Mediterranean climate where summer heat waves and drought are common this 4.3 hectare site of 80% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah enjoys a southern exposure of vines up to 30 years old with deep roots in schist soil. Powerful and complex this expression is aged for two years in cement tanks for a pure expression of fruit.
