The "Terroir"

The concept of Terroir (i.e soil) is rooted in the monks’ work; they discovered, identified and developed the different types of soils. To do so, several centuries were necessary for this mediaval concept to be officially recognized with the creation of the I.N.A.O and labels of origin.

The essence of Terroir first consists of subsoil and soil from which the vine plant draws its nutritious elements. Thanks to those two components, the vine plant will create the secret alchemy of colours, aromas and flavours.

If the the type of soil is the key element to determine a Terroir, many other natural factors will influence the wine quality, typicity and expression: the parcel exposure, its altitude, how deep is the soil and how it is drained, the year weather conditions, the microclimate.

Finally, the Human is playing an important role in making wine: in the vineyard depending on cultural method choice and implementation, from the pruning, cut to the harvests, and in the cellar during the vinification and the ageing.
