Léon Barral Jadis is a natural red wine coupage of the Syrah, Cariñena and Garnacha Tinta varieties made by Domaine Léon Barral in the A.O.C. Faugères in Languedoc-Roussillon, France.
The grapes used to make the Léon Barral Jadis wine come from vines aged between 30 and 60 years old in plots with schist soils, facing south. When the grapes reach the winery, they macerate in cement tanks for three to four weeks. The must is then placed in an old vertical basket press. The wine ages in oak barrels, 10% of which are new, for 24 to 26 months, depending on the vintage.
