Tertiary terraces and colluvial limestone: two complementary soil types

The three different parts of our vineyards are situated on the two best soil types of Cahors. The largest plot, 12,5 hectares, is oriented southwest and was formed on colluvial lime stone soils. We call this argilo-calcareous, very rocky ground that plays a huge role in thermoregulation and water supply “Tran”. The wines produced in those vineyards are particularly straight and long, showing very fine tannins.

The two other plots (5,5 hectares and 7,5 hectares) are oriented straight south. They are a mixture of pebble stones and ferruginous red sands at the surface and siliceous earth and clay below. The wines from these vineyards show power, density and texture.
