The Domaine Michelin, Les Combes Cachées is the dream come true of three friends (Xavier Michelin, Michel Pousse, and François Aumonier) from the same village near Toulouse, with different backgrounds but a shared passion for wine. After searching for 2 years, they found the ideal quality-driven terroir and vines they were looking for in La Livinière, the first Cru of the Languedoc. Old Vines, the only ones planted on the slopes in little valleys rolling down the hills at 400m above sea level and organic. The team partnered with David Ciry, an experienced winemaker from the region, with worldwide experience in winemaking as consultant. With the support of friends and family, the estate Les Combes Cachées has launched its first vintage 2015 that has al-ready been acclaimed by critics. Since then the vineyard has grown and structured. It also has a brand new wine cellar in the old distillery of the cooperative cellar of Siran of 1907, rehabilitated.
