When Eric d'Aramon married Laure Manoncourt, the daughter of Thierry Manoncourt, he swopped the world of yogurt for that of wine. "Tasting wine is much more interesting than tasting yogurt." he says. D'Aramon started at Figeac in 1988 taking over the commercial reins in 1992. "It was in 1995 that I really started to make the wine he says." Taking over from Thierry Manoncourt must have been daunting. Manoncourt's first vintage was 1943, he has made or been involved in all the vintages since 1947 and at 92 – 93 years old in September – he remains actively involved.
