DISCOVERING OUR TERROIR

The estate is located in the heart of the Rhône Valley, on the left bank of the Rhône River, between Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Courthézon, and Orange.

 

Our vineyards stretch across soils rich in clay and limestone, with a high proportion of rounded stones that absorb the heat of the sun during the long summer days and release it to our vines during the night.

 

This combination of geological and climatic factors creates ideal conditions for the grapes to reach a high level of maturity. It is this renowned combination that contributes to the reputation of our wine.

OUR VINEYARD

The area of the vineyard ist of 3200 hectares spread in the Vaucluse, between Orange and Avignon.

The maximum authorized legal yield is 35hl/ha with mandatory sorting ofand the harvest.
