Additional Information

• Grapes are biodynamically farmed • All grapes are harvested by hand and then sorted • Depending on the variety, grapes are de-stemmed (in general, grapes from the youngest vines), however whole clusters are also used • Wine is vinified in gravity-fed, cement cuves • Maceration takes place for 3 to 4 weeks with regular, manual punch-downs in cement tanks. After maceration, grapes are lightly pressed with an old, wooden, vertical, basket press • Faugères is aged for 2 years in cement and stainless steel cuves
something
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 trend to respect the ecosystem, to promote interactions between the plant and animals and enhance immunity of the vine.
