From the chosen method of cultivation...
The vineyard has converted approximately 200 hectares of land to Organic Agriculture for an average production of 10,000 hl, or 50 hl/ha.
At the foot of the Cevennes mountains, the vineyard soil clings to a clay-limestone texture of medium to shallow depth, sometimes stony, and with limited water potential.
We use two cultivation methods depending on the specific characteristic of the soil:
- On 90 ha: complete ploughing of the plot with stubble ploughing on the row
- On 110 ha consisting of more clayey soils, more sensitive to gullying: tillage on the row - stubble removal - inter-row ploughing but grassed every other row.
This technique limits the vigour of the vines and encourages the development of polyphenols and anthocyanins. These two cultivation practices make it possible to carry out Organic Agriculture, a factor in the development of organic matter and therefore the typicality of these soils.
This typicity is found in our wines, whose vinification will strive to be close to the tastes of organic wine consumers, in the search for light, fruity, silky wines without excessive body.
