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 wine is garnet in the glass, the nose has aromas of red and black fruits and spices. The palate is spicy and fresh with good tannins
