Corbieres-Boutenac Domaine Ledogar 2016, organic/biodynamic, Grenache blend, low sulphites, full bodied, warming red of great class. Boutenac is a special terroir with poor soils on a limestone base. Known locally as Corbières’s ‘golden triangle’ because of the outstanding quality of the terroir and the predominance of old vines. The best selection from the oldest vines are destemmed for this, the top red of the domain. Natural fermentation takes place in barrels followed by further ageing in old barrels. It has the power and depth you would expect from a Languedoc red at this price but as with all Ledogar wines, such poise, freshness and drinkability make this wine a cut above the rest. Superb for roast meat and winter nights.

Domaine Ledogar is a 22 hectares estate on the Terroir of Corbieres Boutenac – near Carcasonne – laboured on by two brothers Xavier and Mathieu, winemakers for 4 generations.

Xavier Ledogar, who has always loved nature, started working in the vineyards when he was 12. In 1997 he took over the Domaine on his own and built a new cellar to start making his own wine rather than selling the fruit to the cooperative in the age old French peasant tradition. From the outset, Xavier has been committed to Biodynamic production, eschewing all chemical and mechanical inputs to the point that they even use horses and donkeys for ploughing and natural weed killers! Pure wines of great character are the result, a must try for lovers of southern French wines.
