If you visit the Borie de Maurel, avoid wearing stiletto heals or shiny Sunday shoes. The domaine's vines cling to the rocky slopes of the black mountain, the southern-most limit of the Massif Central. In 1989, Michel Escande dropped his other passion, sailing, to come inland with his wife. They borrowed money to buy 5 hectares of vines, a wine cellar and a superb but ageing house. Then they decided to look after the family’s vineyard seriously. With the tenacity of a sailor and the faith of a peasant farmer, Michel learned about his land, listening to advice and experience until he unterstood that he was in possession of a real treasure. This showed from the first cuvees of Sylla which the international press have been raving about since the early 90's. Wine aficionados have re-named him “the wizard of Felines”... Esprit d’automne heads the collection of Borie de Maurel fine wines with its mineral touch followed by scents of black olives, tobacco and spices which recall the vineyard on a limestone and clay plateau called the 'Petite Causse'. Then comes intense fruit with aromas of morello cherries, red fruits, then mint and liquorice on the finish. The lasting sensation of rich, complex harmony, smooth balance and serenity is truly characteristic of the red wines of the Domain.
