Exposed to the weather and particularly to the Mistral for more than 100 days a year, the vineyard is located in one of the driest zones of the Valley of the Rhone, on the southern part of the estate. It benefits from over 2 800 hours of sunshine per year, but it is at night that the "caÃÂ¯au frejaÃÂ¼*" give back the heat stored all day long, just like an oven.
The homogeneity of the ChÃÂ¢teauneuf-du-Pape vineyard located on an exceptional terroir is very representative of those who have contributed to the reputation of the estate (a single plot of 25 hectares with several other plots nearby). The CÃÂ´tes du RhÃÂ´ne vineyard is located in a small valley.
The choice of the Grenache, Syrah, MourvÃÂ¨dre, Roussane and Viognier varietals has imposed itself given the particularities of the climatic and geologic conditions of the vineyard.
The restructuring of the vineyard undertaken over the past years, which has seen the planting of 20 000 stocks on 30 ChÃÂ¢teauneuf du Pape hectares has allowed keep the old grapevines and to develop the aromatic complexities.
