A Côtes-du-Rhône crafted by a talented vintner who traiend with Pierre Overnoy. More info

Indigo is the red Côtes-du-Rhône from a domain founded in 2016. It is a blend of mainly Syrah with around 10% Grenache noir. The vines used are around 20 years old and are grown organically and biodynamically in soil composed of clay, chalk, and sand. Yields are limited to 17hl per ha in order to optimise grape ripeness and the concentration of aromas, flavours, and textures.
The grapes are harvested by hand. Vinification involves total destemming, a long 14-week maceration, and 14 months of maturation in stainless steel vats. This container allows for a pure expression of the fruit and its terroir. The wine is bottles without sulphur or additives.
This is a juicy cuvée marked by notes of black fruit, gentle spices, liquorice, and flowers (mainly violet). It has an enveloping texture on the palate. We recommend serving this wine in its youth with meat and sauce or a lentil-based dish, for example.

Côtes du Rhône Indigo Aurélien et Charlotte Houillon serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Joue de bœuf en sauce, Boudin noir aux pommes, Petit salé aux lentilles.

Peak: A boire jusqu'en 2026

Information about domain Aurélien et Charlotte Houillon

Domaine Aurélien and Charlotte Houillon was founded at Faucon, in the Vaucluse, in 2017. Just like his brother, Aurélien trained at Domaine Pierre Overnoy, before following up his experience in Switzerland and then launching into the task of starting his own domain with his wife. The vineyard spans 9 hectares at the foot of Mont Ventoux. The soils are worked mechanically and fertiliser from the property's animals is used. As we can imagine from the Aurélien's history, everything to do with vinification is natural, all the way down to the label! Charlotte is a specialist in ancient manuscripts and has learnt how to make paper from vegetal matter. The wines from this young property are promising, offering at once power and amazing fruit. A domain to discover and follow closely!
