Stéphane Erissé was a builder before he apprenticed under Antoine Foucault of Domaine du Collier. He went on to purchase a small domaine (just 3ha) of vines which had been farmed organically for 20+ years. He does not use any chemicals in the vines, works with minimal intervention in the cellar and adds just a touch of SO2 at bottling, if any.

Les Mines is named after the vineyard's appearance — its dark soils, which Stéphane believes to be rich in coal and graphite resemble a coal mine. Stéphane also believes this mineral-rich soil imparts a distinct quality to the wine, which is aged in 30% new barrels for 2 years before release.
