Domaine Bordes is managed by Philippe and Emma Bordes. Propelled by a desire to return to the countryside, Philippe retired his life as a plumber and became a vintner. After eating organically grown foods for over 30 years, organic viticulture was a natural choice when he began making wine. This rustic blend has vivid black cherry aromas, hints of garrigue, and some earthiness on the nose. The palate opens with black berry, smoke, a little funk, dried herbs and black pepper. Luxuriously textured, the Les Nary's should be imbibed with roasted pork, hearty lentils or shepherd's pie.
