The Terroir

Typically Mediterranean in style, Bargylus elegantly combines strength and refinement: it has a strong color, the range of aroma is perceivable through the fresh fruit and minerality that translates the very shingly soil. The balance between sweetness, that comes with sunniness and the grapes’ full maturity, and salinity that comes with limestone, allows Bargylus to convey a strong soil identity and an inimitable taste.

Stephane Derenoncourt, the well-known and celebrated Bordeaux consultant of Domaine de Bargylus, relates the beginning of his collaboration with the Saadé Family :

“I met the Saadé family for a wine project proposal. I was instantly seduced by the Syrian project which consisted in creating a vineyard in a land on which it used to grow in ancient time. I was also struck by the passion and dynamism of the Saadé family who decided to come back and develop new projects in Syria. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the site and the diversity of soils: Everything was set to start this beautiful adventure”
