A vineyard is made of parcels of vines in different types of soil in a particular geographic location in climate. These two factors define the soil that is part of a landscape and a region. Mattes is the place where the vines have been since 2000 years. In the Languedoc region of the Corbières near the Mediterranean sea where the domain extends over 615 ha seems to be the region of France where the mosaic of soils is the largest. More than 23 different soils were identified and they guarantee the diversity of our wines.
Our 90 acres vineyard is composed of more or less 30 plots of 3 acres each distributed in two parts:
The plain part called "en bas" near the Berre river with deep loamy soils is 27 acres wide.
The AOC part is about 60 acres large and surrounds the house. It has two distinct areas: a very gritty alluvial terrace called " le plateau" that is very similar to Chateauneuf du Pape. The second one is more heterogeneous with limestone and marl soils . In this area , our plots are more scattered , to keep the best ones .
