Terroir & Vineyards

The strength of a terroir

Lying half-way between Orange and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in a corner of nature that remains intact, the roots of our vines delve deep into stony ground heated by the hot Provence sun and swept by the powerful Mistral wind.

Between coppices of green oak, pine trees and sweet-smelling Garrigue heathland, our vines flourish like jewels in a setting of vegetation that has lost nothing of its wildness. Here, small fauna and game of all types roam, proving the preserved biodiversity that is a major contributor to the balance of our terroir.

Be they on slopes or on terraces, our vineyards play on a geological mosaic where each boasts its own personality: in turn, big river-rolled pebbles, brown clay and light sand make up our plots giving our wine their own special personality. A good number of underwater springs ensure that water levels remain stable, giving our wine natural freshness and minerality.
