ABOUT: The soils are composed of Clay-Limestone and Clay with Flint, on a Tufa subsoil, make it possible to reach optimal maturities. They lend themselves to the production of wines that are both supple and fruity, round and full-bodied, with a fine minerality depending on the grape variety.
Our cultural policy incorporates natural grass cover as well as minimal intervention for the vines. We thus aim for a sustainable development of our vineyard, where each decision must preserve the balance between tradition and innovation. In particular, we limit the use of weed killer, we limit soil erosion, encourage the rooting of vine stocks, and preserve the fauna and flora at soil level.
