Campo Eliseo - whose name (champs elysees in French) is not intended to pay homage to the famous avenue in Paris, but to the souls of the heroes and virtuous men of Greek mythology… - is the fruit of a meeting between Michel Rolland and Jacques Lurton. Remarking that people always compared their respective styles, they came to the conclusion ”why not make a wine together ?” They were tempted by Spain, both agreeing on the potential of the terroir of the Duero valley, and besides, Jacques and Francois Lurton had already set up a structure there, in Toro. All they needed was to find the grapes to buy. That is how the rolland-lurton partnership began... In order to make the campo Eliseo wine, they selected five Spanish winemakers who work together and whose vines are situated on the driest and latest-ripening sandy-clay terroirs. The vines are all more than 30 years old. The cultivation methods are rigorous: working the soil, pruning, green pruning, leaf-thinning, green harvesting… and the favourable climate allows treatment with Bordeaux mixture and sulphur to be limited. The result is a new dimension given to the Tempranillo (called Tinta de Toro here), linked to the savoir-faire of this quartet of professionals who want to take you to… Elysian Fields (to paradise)! The first vintage made was in 2001. Michel and Dany Rolland, with Jacques and Francois Lurton, are now making their sixth vintage, still made in Toro. In view of the positive results from the very first vinification, they decided to find some land to work fully with their conviction, starting at soil level: planting density, water control etc. They found what seems to suit them best, and they are currently putting in place the installations, storage cellar, cellar etc. A production unit of the future!
