The parcels are located on two geological entities: 1/4 of their surface is on asteriated limestone and 3/4 on the Fronsadais molasses. The average age of the vines is 50 years. The density of the latest plantations is 12,600 vines/ha. The vineyard is managed according to the principles of Biodynamics. 2nd wine: Chapelle d'Ausone.
