Yoan Le Menn

In 2004 Yoan Le Menn, at the tender age of 16 was individual French Fly Fishing Champion for the first time. He subsequently went on to capture the trophy in 2005 and 2006. This competitive aspect of his character and the search for excellence that goes with it made him stand out on a visit from Wines Direct.

 

Domaine Horgelus was created in 1978 by Yoan's father, Joseph Le Menn. Breton by origin, he was attracted by the charm of the South West, its gastronomy and its art of living. The domaine is located on a sunny hillside in Gascony, an area renowned primarily for the production of Armagnac, but which is slowly but surely gaining a reputation for excellent red and white wines.

 

This progression started in the 1980's, thanks, largely, to producers like the Le Menn family, who strive to make wines with freshness and ripe fruit flavours as their most important features. Yoan Le Menn is of the new generation of oenologues who combine modernity with tradition. He is dedicated to preserving the aroma of the wines by preventing any form of oxidation during vinification.

 

For this reason, grapes are harvested early in the morning, from 3 am 'til 11, ensuring no freshness is lost in the heat of the midday sun. These lovely fresh fruit flavours are the essence of Domaine Horgelus.

Domaine Horgelus

It is on the sunny hills of Gascony, in Montreal of the Gers in the heart of the South-West, that the Le Menn family gave birth to Domaine Horgelus. The estate now covers 66 hectares of vineyards located around the winery.
