55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc,
20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vines are an average of 45 years old. Green harvesting
takes place most years and earlier than at many other estates,
around July 14th. The vineyard has 3 sections with different
soil types. There are 8 hectares bordering
on the Saint-Emilion plateau. This area has a very thick layer
of clay soil. Next comes the slope vineyard, covering 22 hectares.
Its clay-limestone soil is only 50 to 60 centimeters deep,
on a subsoil of friable limestone that induces vine roots
to go very far down for nourishment. Some rootlets have been
found 17 meters underground. The third, and last part,
of the vineyard is on the lower part of the slope, where there
are 7 hectares of mostly clay and sandy soil.
