Tang of the soil

A vintage wine is the result of a successful alliance between a grape variety, a soil and a climate.

The grey sandy clay and the iron hard pan layer Quaternary terrace of Vieux Chevrol, irrigated by the presence of sand and gravels, contribute to a rather ungiving soil where the “merlot” slowly takes root deep down to offer a small quantity of fruit with a specific character.

The success here of the delicate “merlot” on this low level plateau (39m) is largely due to the ocean climatic conditions tied to the effect of the Gulf Stream.
