Les Graves”, Bordeaux gravels

AN EXCEPTIONAL TERROIR 

The “Graves” denomination refers to this terroir and underlines the major role played in the quality its wines. It is actually the only denomination in France bearing the name of its soil. “Las gravas de Bordeu”, literally “the Bordeaux gravels”. They are alluvial stones carried by Garonne river and deposited on its banks millions of years ago. Rooted in the heart of Bordeaux vineyard, in the middle of unspoiled nature, our estate draws its strength from the diversity of its terroirs. This outstanding situation empowers our wines with aromatic richness, typical from Graves denomination wines.

The terroir footprint

FROM THE GROUND TO THE GRAPE

Entirely in “Graves” denomination, our estate is located on gravel hills, with clay under layer, close to Sauternes terroir. Here, sun is not shy! The vines flourish filled of sunshine and beneficiating from hot gravels radiations at the end of the day. As a result, berries mature regularly and gradually, to reflect the outmost expression of our terroir.

Respect for nature

LISTENING TO THE LAND

All our plots carry grass between 2 vine rows and are weeded under the row. The inter-row is sown with various plants aiming at different goals: natural fertilization, soil structuring, organic material enhancement, biodiversity preservation, limitation of erosion and carbon storage tool. Each year, we increase mechanical weeding. Many hedges, woods and a few streams run through the vineyard, providing a priceless asset for biodiversity
