A climate, a terroir and grape varieties well adapted to the production of a high quality wine guaranteed over time.

As the plan shows, most of the estate is divided into three different terroirs.

Part 1 of the vineyard, made up of gravel and clay, is located in a meander of the lot.

Part 2 of the vineyard, composed of clay-limestone scree, is on the edge of the old bed of the Lot..
Part 3 called the 3rd terrace is made of deep clay

Part 1 of the vineyard, located on the former alluvial terraces of the Lot, is the second terrace, dating back 200,000 years and is also called Riss alluvial deposits.

The soil is acidic to neutral, composed of siliceous pebbles mixed with reddish ferruginous sands, quartz pebbles, gravel and pebbles coated with clay.

It has a very high proportion of bass. The soil is therefore draining, it allows a good maturation and the obtaining of very fine tannins.




Part 2 of the vineyard located outside the meander on a cone of limestone scree in perpetual movement.

This very stony clay-limestone soil is called Tran.

Its thermal and hydrometric role is essential.

The wines of this plot are particularly rich and long with very fine tannins.

Part 3 of the vineyard is located in another meander of the river, composed of deep clay, deposited over millennia, it now forms the plateau of the 3 terraces.

The thickness of the clay allows the roots to descend, the plant is regularly supplied with water.

The wines from this parcel are very pleasant to drink with well-melted tannins
