The blending of the plots brings together the qualities of the four soils, giving a balanced, racy, mineral wine with a great finish. "Les Narvaux", with a south-east exposure, is on stony soil located on hard rock subsoil. This plot produces elegant and mineral wines. "Les Clous", located on shallow marl (30-40 cm) produces delicate, elegant and mineral wines. "Le Limozin" has beautiful sloping moderately deep land producing long and rich wines. "Les Criots" and "Les Crotots" are on very rich soil and produce generous, slightly buttery and fat wines.
Jean-Philippe is convinced that the quality of a wine depends first and foremost on the quality of the work carried out in the vineyard. Since its very beginnings, the estate has used sustainable techniques as Jean-Philippe has always attached great importance to environmental impact. To go even further in this approach, the estate is now in organic farming mode.
