Château Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac Information
About the domain
Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac was created in 1895 with the merger of three small holdings by Madame Godeau. Her lover, Monsieur Bouchard, built the château in 1903. They kept the property for thirty years; subsequently it was briefly managed by a wine merchant (Allo) and then a poet (Clément) before finally being taken over by the Carrère family in 1956, who only purchased the vineyard. The parent family acquired the property in 1997. The vines, with an average age of 30 years, grow on a gravel/iron-silica soil.
About the cuvée
After manual harvests, a third of the wine is matured in new barrels.

Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.

Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
