After 40 years at the head of the estate, Philippe takes a well-deserved retirement, he leaves his place to Sylvain but will always be present.
Sylvain, François, Philippe and all the team of Domaine de l’Idylle are happy to invite you to their
Open cellar Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May 2018 !
Come and taste our different wines in a warm atmosphere !
The 2017 vintage is a great quality for a small harvest. After the spring frosts, the sunny and warm summer allowed the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The harvest, early this year, began on September 5 with the harvest of crémant. We finished 1 month later with the harvest of Mondeuse d’Arbin. The whites of the 2017 vintage are very aromatic with a nice freshness. The 2017 red wines are characterized by great finesse and pronounced fruit expression. Our Arbin 2015 vintages are at their optimum maturity for drinking.
Many activities are on the program of this open cellar to discover our wines and our vineyard in a funny way.
- Saturday, a Segway® ride to discover the Cruet hillsides in an original way:
- Departure 11h, 14h30 and 15h30 reservation at 06 01 21 04 08.
- Nathalie, François’s daughter, will offer children pony rides in the field (Ecurie de Coise). The small animals of the farm will be there too.
During this weekend you can also visit the cellar and understand the wines development, and, of course, enjoy the traditional diots at the marc from Mamie Fernande.
