The vineyard can be divided into three clearly-identified terroirs:
– The limestone plateau, situated around 85 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: white lithic limestone (white limestone soil on “starfish limestone”).
– The hillside, situated around 55 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: finely-textured brown limestone on Fronsadais molasse (heavy clay-limestone soil).
– The foothills, situated around 35 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: colluvial brown limestone on non-limestone fluvial sands (clay-limestone soil at the bottom of the slope) and brown, large-grained soils (sandy clay).
