Didier Barral, a man of conviction, began running the estate in 1990, in search of authentic expressions of its soil. Helped by his brother Jean-Luc, this obstinate winemaker has created a culture of fashion to respect the ecosystem, to promote interactions between the plant and animals and enhance immunity of the vine.

The nose is marked by beautiful notes of black fruit compote and the mouth shows a great concentration. The balance is perfect and the finish, full of freshness, seems endless.
