In classical music a quintet is a group containing five soloist of one player each on flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn. Olivier Collin of Domaine Ulysse Collin took to this analogy, and with a classical music mind, adapted that each wine in the box is a soloist, and so named this collection "Quintet". The 100% oak case is a reminder of the living material of the barrels Olivier has used to age his wines since 2004. Each case features leather crafted handle and is closed with a warranty seal displaying a specific lot number.

"Les Enfers" Blanc de Blancs 2010

"Les Enfers" 2010 is only available as part of this Quintet and nowhere else on the market due to the limited production.

Les Enfers is a new parcel that Olivier started cultivating in 2010, it’s located near Les Roises but with an exposition to the east. The soil is similar to Les Roises with clay topsoils, limestone subsoils and 100% Chardonnay. For the first vintage in 2010 Olivier Collin produced of Enfers but due to hail in 2011 and mildew 2012 Olivier was not able to produce any Enfer for two consecutive vintages. It was aged in Olivier's cellar for 48 months.
