When one is as passionate about wine - as Christophe Pillon and his father, Gerard, are - one cannot imagine doing anything but viticulture and organic wine. In 2015, the winemaker obtained the organic label for all of his 31 hectares. The vines are planted in the heart of the Les Baux de Provence valley and its distinguished appellation.


In keeping with this same "bio ethics" (biodynamic farming, hand picked olives), the Domaine Lauzières extracts a delicate, extra virgin PDO olive oil from its 4,500 trees, planted on 30 hectares between vineyards and scrubland. Born of a subtle blend of four fruit varieties (Grossane, Solanenque Verdale and Picholine) and simply called "O",  it is long on the palate with a surprising finish, dominated by the Espelette pepper.

Original and unusual

Should we talk about the Petit Verdot, planted in 1995? Now covering a quarter of the domain’s plots, at the time it was “a somewhat crazy gamble,” since even planted on a lyre-training system (to overcome its late maturity), and it still today gives low yields. Yet, this variety of Medoc thrives on the domain’s clay-limestone soil, and gives its full character to the red and rosé wines of the Sine Nomine cuvee.
