About

Product Description:

5 to 15 meters of alluvial sand with siliceous gravel (galets, locally called gress) deposited during the quaternary by the Rhône and Durance rivers. Then clay. The topsoil drains very well and the gress stock daytime heat, redistributing it at night. The deeper layer of clay, which retains water, protects the vines from hydric stress during the summer droughts. There is a strong northwest wind in the Rhone and Provence, called the Mistral, which helps keeps the vineyards free of diseases. -Winery
