In his early 20s Romain le Bars, a native Parisian, had a keen interest in wine and a desire to learn. He wanted to learn from the best and after applying for a job, he moved to the Southern Rhone / Gard in 2012 to work with the legendary Eric Pfifferling. Romain spent the subsequent 7 years working at cult winery Domaine L’Anglore.
100% Carignan Carbonic maceration, elevaged in barrels. A little reduced initially, a wine that benefits air. Darker fruits, slippery, crushed fruit rolled in fine tannins. Its lithe and juicy, fresh, energetic and focused. Incredible length, so focused. Purity I wasn’t expecting. - Notes from the importer, Vivant Selections.
