Domaine du Crampilh Madiran
Le Crampilh is the name of the family country house isolated on top of a hill by the Larcis River in Aurions. The estate dates from the late 1800’s, after Melanie Crampilh married .C Sabin Oulie, mayor of the village at the time. He started utilizing the windmill and then the land, and then gave his wife’s name to the estate. Today it is run by Marie and Bruno Oulie, fourth generation of the family.

The vines are planted on hillsides on a wide variety of soils. Crampilh is mainly comprised of clayish, hand silica, and usually chalky during soils. Harvests are done by hand, usually during the indian summer, all grapes are destemmed, and macerations are 21 days. Wines are aged on average 18 months with regular micro-oxygenation.
