Domaine Les Aurelles
Although only started in 1994, these producers are working with vines up to 70 years old, all 4 wines are recommended in 'Wine Behind the Label' and the estate has been given a 5 star rating (exceptional) by Robert Parker. This is actually a neighbouring estate to Bébian but they produce a very different style of wine.
