En Luraule
This 0.45 ha parcel was bought in 1996. It is situated at the foot of the slope next to 'Les Gouttes d'Or'. Badly affected by fan-leaf degeneration, it produces a small quantity of wine which is very mineral and tense. It has greatly improved through the intensive care taken in applying biodynamic preparations.

Clos de la Baronne
A l'image du Clos de la Barre qui jouxte les bâtiments du domaine, le Clos de la Baronne, vaste parcelle de plus de 3.5 hectares, intègre en ses murs la demeure et la cuverie du domaine Manuel. Après le rachat fin 2010 de cette propriété par des investisseurs, le Clos de la Baronne est désormais loué pour moitié au domaine Roulot, et pour moitié au domaine des Comtes Lafon.
