All of our individual plots have a base of clay-limestone soils, more specifically Kimmeridgian marls — with the exception of Le Carroir, the appellation’s only vines growing on flint. Our region enjoys a continental climate; our parcels are situated at around 300 metres altitude in the commune of Menetou-Salon and up to 350 metres altitude in the hills of Morogues. Our vineyards are planted exclusively with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
Our work is dictated by a day-to-day inspection of the vines. No decision is taken automatically; each one is thought through, to ensure we support the plant when it needs support.
to have the grapes express the qualities and characteristics of their different terroirs in our bottles of wine.
The soil, accordingly, must be full of life, and our work is therefore respectful of the vineyard’s biodiversity. We do not use weed killers or pesticides and the soils are ploughed throughout the estate (winter ploughing and hoeing during the growing season
We make sure that our vines are not overly vigorous; to preserve a good balance we apply our own composts from time to time, in response to any decreases we see.
This careful work in the vineyards allows us to achieve much more than the varietal aromas in our grapes. The grapes, harvested at optimal maturity, express all the richness of the soils and climates in which they were grown. Our next task is to handle them with care to ensure that their juices offer the same qualities – harvesting on the estate is therefore carried out by hand.
