The fruits are born in the heart of varied soils, clay and limestone marl on basements, and forge their character over contrasting seasons. In winter the earth collects enough water to balance the summers in moderate drought and temperature variations between day and night marked. Demanding land and contrasting the Pic Saint Loup, the typical characteristics of its soil and climate are all character traits of our wines.
