The history of Domaine Laurens Having been awarded a BTS Viticulture et Œnologie, Michel Laurens gained his initial experience at the heart of the management team of a wine producing establishment. In 1983 he and his brother, Gilbert, decided to continue the family tradition of vine growing and wine production, and in 1986 they opened their own distillery. At present, the Domain Laurens consists of 21 hectares of vineyards which are cultivated and exploited in the family tradition with great care and diligence. The system of green sowing between the vines allows the soil to remain cool throughout the hot summer months, avoids soil erosion and limits the use of herbicides thus preserving the integrity of the fruit. In mid-october the grapes are harvested by hand allowing selection of the best quality fruit, care being taken to leave the grapilles, which have yet to ripen, on the vine for the pleasure of the local hunters .... To ensure the production of wines, aperitifs and spirits in the best and purest traditions of the Aveyron, the ancient vaulted cellars are furnished with all the modern equipment essential to ensure effective step by step quality control. The unique character of the Marcillac red and white wines, the Ratafias, the spirits and the liqueurs we produce are the pleasing result of this combination of tradition and modernity. The principal customers of the Laurens Domain are individual wine-lovers, restaurants, specialist shops and boutiques aswell as commercial wine cellars. Our produce is marketed locally, nationally and abroad. The grape-vine works well ! We regularly welcome coach parties. Maryse and Martine Laurens offer visitors an entertaining programme including a visit to Clairvaux, an impressive medieval village with ramparts, narrow winding alleys, vaulted cellars and a roman church listed as a historic monument. The tour is nicely rounded off by a visit to the wine cellars with, of course, the oppurtunity to taste our wine. Read less
