terroir


The vineyard covers 36 hectares of land – 25 planted with grape.
Some resting land and garrigue and Mediterranean woods cover the rest of the land.

The vineyard is divided up as such:

 

AOP Beaumes-de-Venise red
15 hectares (more than 37 acres) are classified « cru » since 2005 in the villages of Suzette and La Roque Alric.
The red and yellow Triassic soils occupy most of the appellation; these are very old
(180 to 200 million years) and very deep soils.
These are flush soils due to a compression phenomenon.

This area is called "diapir”. And a more recent part made of marl limestone and scree more recent.

AOP Ventoux red & rose
6 hectares (more than 14 acres), in the villages of Le Barroux and St Hippolyte le Graveyron.
Les Estaillades (Le Barroux) : the soils are clay and sand, very much the same as Triassic ones.
La Gérine (Saint-Hippolyte) : the soils are clay and gravel , and more recent.


AOP Côtes-du-Rhône red and white
4 hectares in Suzette (more than 9 acres)

Les Romanins : our Côtes du Rhône red is mainly composed of our young vines,
that produce to light wine for the “Cru” Beaumes de Venise.
So the plots of vines are different from one year to another.
Le Blanc: clay-limestone and grey marl soils


In good weather, we produce about 100,000 bottles per year.
