Didier Barral is focused above all else on typicity. He wants his wine to taste like it came from his vineyards in the schist-ridden hills of Lentheric, and he will try anything to accomplish this goal, as long as it doesn’t involve adding man-made chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers to his soil. The Marcel Lapierre of the south, Didier produces wine that contains nothing but the fruit harvested ripe from his old vines planted in his stony yet fertile soil. Earthy, meaty, savory, juicy, and powerful, it is a glassful of joyful, soulful goodness. Barral’s is a signature that cannot be mistaken.
