Lionel Maurel is of the fourth generation of winemakers in his family, but he broke from the ways of his father and grandfather who previously sold their grapes to co-ops, choosing instead to make and sell his own wines in 2004. His land is in Nébian, about 40 kilometers northwest of Montpélier.

Young Lionel farms his grapes organically, paying special attention to each individual parcel. He tills the soil by hand, uses only organic fertilizers (cow and sheep manure), and treats his vines with copper and sulfur.

Above all, he seeks to reflect the vintage in his wines. Lionel farms 2.4 hectares of 70-year old Carignan vines on terraces from the Villafranchian period (1.9 to 1.8 million years ago) with rolled pebbles.
