Corbieres 'La Compagnon', Domaine Ledogar 2008
Domaine Ledogar is run by Xavier and Mathieu Ledogar and every effort is made to make wine in a way they learnt from their elders. They follow lunar cycles, have horse drawn ploughs and use donkeys to 'weed' between the vines. It is a holisitc approach to winemaking that the brothers believe gives a purer quality of fruit and therefore better expression of the terroir.
A hearty red needs hearty food so match it with red meats, game and anything with a rich flavoursome suace, like casseroles.
Domaine Ledogar has been owned and run by Xavier Ledogar since 1997. The vineyard previously sold its grapes to a local co-operative but Xavier wanted to follow his heart and make his own wine. The winery used to be called Domaine Grand Lauze but the name was changed to reflect the fact that they were now making their own wine. One of the buildings bought by Xavier's Dad dating back to 1905 was converted in the winery and cellar area.
"La Compagnon" almost leaps out of the glass with a nose giving heaps of black fruit and licorice. On the palate, the wine is rounded and smooth with all that soft fruit and a hint of a spicy finish. A beautiful wine which, as the name suggests, is a perfect companion with food.
