The La Migoua vineyard is on the outskirts of the village of Le Beausset, perched on the southern face of the Le Beausset-Vieux hill range on a chalk and clay terroir. Strata of 200 million year old Muschelkalk can be found here. The soil structure varies throughout the vineyard from stony to various colours of clay ranging from red to ochre to almost blue in some places. The terroir is in the form of a natural amphitheatre with an average altitude of 270m above sea level. Cuvée La Migoua is comprised of 50 to 65 % Mourvedre depending on the year. A significant amount of Cinsault is also grown in this vineyard, particularly on the south-facing hillside known as 'La Louffe'. With a tendancy towards more animal notes than the estate’s other cuvées,La Migoua expresses great complexity. It is a wine with a delicate nose, excellent balance and a long ageing potential.
