Notes "The first time I tasted Domaine Leon Barral’s Faugères I experienced a coup de foudre. It wasn’t really because of the wine’s succulent notes of mixed red and black fruit, spices, and leather. It wasn’t even that it was somehow simultaneously rustic and graceful, dark and light on its feet. Instead, I fell in love with Barral’s Faugères because of the raw, primal feeling the wine gave me: specifically, the desire to go hunting with my uncle in the backwoods of Maine and sip this soulful red by a campfire, far away from city lights and social media." (Kermit Lynch, Importer)
