Description of Château Baratet Bordeaux Superieur 2016
Château Baratet Bordeaux Superieur 2016 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)
The Jean Da Fré estate is located in the small town of Saint-Laurent-du-Bois 60 kilometres southeast of the city of Bordeaux. He was one of the first Bordeaux winegrowers to go organic and it is a decision that the winemaker Jean Da Fré has never regretted: While in the world's most famous wine-growing region, a large part of the winemakers are struggling with sales problems, he has succeeded with his wines from organic grapes: "Ever since the 1990s the demand for organic wine has been growing steadily," he says . The estate was formerly dominated by cattle while wine was merely an incidental matter. Today, everything is different: the cows are gone, the domain consists of 30 hectares of vines, three quarters of red varieties and a quarter with white grapes. An additional ten hectares of forest, meadows and natural land serve as an ecological compensation area. Besides grapes, melons and tomatoes are grown.
