comblage-longOur soil is composed of river stones, the famous « galets roulés », which got cumulated in our area millions of years ago, during the ice age period. These stones are made of quartzite, a pure and hard silica. This layer of stones is sometimes several meters deep, and mixed with a brownish clay.
From this soil our wine gets its depth and concentration. The stones cumulate the sun heat during the day, and reject it during the night


comblage-longWe also have a second soil type, less known, but equally important: an alluvial soil of fine sand mixed with clay. This soil type if very beneficial for the finesse and elegance in our wines.

The mixture of these two soil types brings a lot more complexity in our wine and continuity over the different vintages.
