2019 Aurélien & Charlotte Houillon Indigo
The 2019 Aurélien & Charlotte Houillon Indigo a very special Southern Rhône wine. A product of Aurelien’s method of long, slow semicarbonic maceration in closed steel tanks over several months and minimal pumping over. With a little cellar time to help evolve it even further, in just the Houillons’ third year vintage, this is exciting stuff sure to gain an even stronger following. Indigo is the Houillons’ top wine, focused on 50 year old Syrah and 70 year old Grenache.
The Houillon name is well known in the Jura region, sibling trio Emmanuel, Adeline and Aurelien all learned with the legendary master Pierre Overnoy. After spending time in Switzerland gaining further experience in biodynamic farming, younger brother Aurelien and wife Charlotte settled in the southern Rhône foothills in the shadow of the famous Mont Ventoux.
