The terroir

Sediment, lime, gravel and red loams make up our terroir, and they allow us to design a rather atypical regional production which is both powerful and drinkable.

Created in the tertiary era, the terroir mainly consists of Langesse du Lutétien limestone on the higher ground and colluvium and gravel from the quaternary era on the surface.

The subsoil consists of decomposing Saint-Marc and Langesse limestones.

Deeper down, we find clay-chalk and red loams, whose impermeability protects us from droughts. The water reserves evaporate slowly whenever necessary, and loams emerge at certain points on the estate.
