THE FACETS OF OUR TERROIR

The Origin of our Wines

Located at the confluence of the Rhône, Camargue and Languedoc, the mosaic of terroirs combines the richness of different varieties.

Water

The Rhône, located a few kilometres away, has modelled the stony soil of our terroir. This exceptional rounded-stone (grès) terroir lies on an argilo-calcerous marl that offers precious water resources. Thanks to this, the vines draw moisture from the depths, which is one of the contributing factor to the balance of our wines.

Sun

The sundial bears the Latin motto ‘Sine Sole Nihil’, Nothing Without Sunshine.
It symbolises the search for a good ripeness and richness while preserving the harmony of the wine.

Stone

The stony alluvium was transported from the Alps by the glacier of the Rhône in the quaternary era (close to 2 million years ago).
This minerality, the signature of the wines of the estate, imparts balance and freshness to the wines.

Wind

The North Wind with its dry and cold Mistral combats dampness, a source of disease.
The South Wind with its summer sea breezes contributes to the freshness and the purity of the fruit in the wines.
