Mainly composed of shale and sandstone, this Permian soil is poor and thus the wines must take root deeply to benefit from the full characteristics of the land.
IN THE VINEYARD
To prevent erosion due to highly irregular rainfall, long terraces have been built on the slopes of the Maures Massif where the wines are espalier trained.
Traditional growing methods are given priority and include the ploughing to ventilate the soil and the using of organic rather than chemical manure for regeneration. Besides, treatment is preventive rather than curative so smaller doses are used.
