Domaine Houillon produces wild wines that still possess the depth and southern Rhône intensity from the classic grapes of the region (Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault). And, in a nod to just how artisanal and hand made this project is, some of the labels are made from their own papyrus they are screening from scratch in their barn!
Winemaking Notes: Cinsault grapes are harvested by hand from organically farmed vines. The harvest is entirely destemmed with a 3 week long skin maceration. The wine is pressed to stainless steel and fermentation occurs spontaneously with indigenous yeast. This cuvee is aged for 6 months and bottled without fining or filtration and with no added SO2.
