Vinification: Mainly Merlot from 30-40 year vines. Vinified initially in two fiberglass tanks, the whole bunches had five days maceration. One tank had a little pigeage and the other none to keep the floral aromas from the semi-carbonic maceration. The two tanks were mixed after pressing and aged in stainless steel tank.

Aging: Stainless steel for 9 months

Fining or Filtering: None

Sulfur: None added

Notes from the Importer: They found the name ‘Idoine’ in a book Laurent’s uncle had written. It means ‘the good stuff’. We agree!

Laurent worked for several years at the venerable Paris bar à vin Le Verre Volé and after that returned to Roussillon to work directly with Alain Castex, then of Le Casot des Mailloles.

Towards the end of 2017, armed with what he had learned from Castex, he and Melissa took over the remaining three hectare vineyard from his father and are returning it to its organic past.

In 2019 they started biodynamics and they are using cover crops to improve the soil quality. In fact, during our morning of walking around all off their vineyards in the spring of 2022 we were very impressed with their understanding of the role the soil plays in the vineyard.
