2015 Léon Barral Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Blanc
Domaine Lèon Barral was founded in 1993 by Didier Barral (the Domaine was named after his late grandfather). Farming Biodynamically from day one, the Domaine is located right in the heart of the Languedoc, in Faugères.
Domaine Lèon Barral is located on top of 14 hectares of steep schist, where they farm the usual AOC suspects such as Grenache and Syrah but also Terret Blanc, Viognier and Roussanne. All grapes are hand harvested, mostly destemmed by hand too and fermented in gravity fed concrete and stainless steel cuves. The wines are never racked, filtered or fined and no SO2 is used.
Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Blanc is Didier's only white wine, a delicious rich, ripe, textural, field blend of approximately 80% Terret Blanc and Gris, 10% Viognier and 10% Roussanne with a vine age of 20-90 years.
