Domaine Ilarria Irouleguy
Natural wine
Country: France

Domaine Ilarria is an organic vineyard and one of the leading independent producers in the stunningly beautiful Irouleguy appellation in the Basque region of South West France. The wines are made by Peio Espil on his small (6 hectare plot) that clings to the steep hillsides of the region. The grapes used are the difficult Tannat (70%) softened with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, This smoky beauty exhibits finer tannins than one could expect from the dominant grape and a long finish. It should last for quite some time.
Domaine Ilarria is an organic certified vineyard.
