TERROIRS

FROM THE EARTH TO THE WINE

The links between a wine and the terroirs it comes from are deep and ever-ramified. We have a strong conviction that respecting the terroir implies respecting the grape it bears. Similarly, we are convinced that preserving ecological balances in our plots participates to the good development of the vineyard and to sane grapes. That is why we use soft techniques that respect our environment, in order to impact as little as possible the natural cycle of the plants and in order to favor the diversity of its ecosystem. We let Nature express itself through our grapes and wines, as typical and authentic as our wine-growers family.

CAIRANNE

The Cairanne appellation has 3 complementary types of soil granting its wine a wide diversity.
• White clay with limestone, cold soil, gives wines with tight and powerful tannins.
• Red clays offer more generous wines which bear more complexity and aromatic richness.
• The terraces of the Aygues, glacier-formed, are interesting for the roundness and the suppleness they give to the wine.

PLAN DE DIEU

This quite uniform terroir is the alluvial terrace formed by the Aigues and the Ouvèze streams around 300.000 years ago with limestone pebbles soils on top of it. This pebbles rest on either blue clay or blue sandstone and allow the humidity to rise from the ground which in turns helps preserving the growth of the plants during the summers droughts.
