The Laurens family has been living in the village of Clairvaux d'Aveyron for several generations in the heart of the Marcillac valley. Starting from a few hectares of vines on the steep slopes of the valley, we have developed the estate to 25 hectares in the Marcillac appellation area. We have selected the hillsides with the best exposure for the optimal expression of our local grape variety, Fer Servadou, known as "Mansois". Our work policy is an environmentally friendly agriculture (grassing between rows, control of treatments, tillage), allowing us to manage our plot diversity as an asset and allow the grapes to express their full qualitative potential. We will adhere to the "High Environmental Value" charter to highlight the diversity of fauna and flora that characterize our vines. Two types of terroirs form our vineyard, clay soils rich in iron oxide from which they take their name from Rougier, topped by limestone scree from the Causses. Our latest investments in the winery allow us to make parcel by parcel vinifications and to express each terroir to the best of our ability.
In the 1970s the two brothers, Gilbert and Michel, took over the family estate with 3 ha of vines. To diversify the activity, they created a distillery that allowed them to market a range of aperitifs and white brandies and to be joined by their wives Martine and Maryse. Since then, Domaine Laurens has continued to develop its range of Marcillac wines. The machine is launched, in 2015 the new generation takes over the estate to perpetuate the family tradition. Vincent, Eric and Pascal want to make their passion their profession and preserve a family heritage.
We are affiliated to the network of Independent Winegrowers of France whose values we share: "Respect its terroir, work its vines, harvest its grapes, vinify and raise its wine, make its brandy, bottle its production in its cellar, market its products, perfect its skills in accordance with tradition, welcome, advise on tasting and take pleasure in presenting the fruit of its work and its culture".
