Our appellations


Today our Domaine counts more than 30 hectares of vine in Pouilly-Fumé A.O.C, spread over the variety of terroirs of the appellation. There are four types:
  • Les caillottes des champs de cris : About 15 vinegrowers work this terroir. It is characterized by high concentrations of limestone and lots of little white pebbles. This gives a fruity wine, mineral in the mouth.
  • Les silex du bois de Saint-Andelain : Only 5 vinegrowers work this part of the ‘hill’. Here we can speak of a terroir with more clay, and a high concentration of flint. This gives the wine a more focused character, with aromas of citrus, more lively than the other terroirs.
  • Le plateau des loges : 100% limestone-clay, gives a typical Sauvignon Blanc, with citrus and white fruit notes and a supple mouth.
  • La marne Kimméridgienne : Often confused with the more classical limestone-clay terroirs, in reality it represents only a small part of the vineyards. It is found at the Loges aux Moines and the parcels round about it, such as the ‘griottes’, or ‘plateau’. These are very poor soils, and are thus naturally pre-disposed to grow vines. They give us wines of another dimension, with an aromatic complexity, and more enhanced taste. There is always more minerality, and the mouth is fatter, more round, thus making it a wine with interesting ageing potential.
For pleasure and out of respect for the traditions of the past, we still grow 1.5 hectares of the chasselas grape under the Pouilly-Sur-Loire A.O.C.


We also work 6 hectares in Sancerre, on soils of limestone-clay in the vineyards of Crézancy and Chavignol.

This is a more uniform terroir, but of a high quality, especially as 70% of our parcels are on the slope facing south or south-east. Thus there is optimal maturity, making a feminine, subtle wine of finesse and minerality.

Here we have noted that there are some very sought after parcels such as the ‘Bois Rafins’, ‘la Rue de Vaux’ and the ‘Les Monts Damnés’.

Côtes de Provence

Our Domaine is at the heart of the appellation, in the middle of the Maures Massif. This vineyard of 35 hectares has a single tenant, and is to be found on the Permian plateau of the ’Vallée des Maures’.

The terroir is made up of red earth, and the bedrock has low levels of assimilated nitrogen, thus it is not very fertile.

This favours low yields, and thus allows us to make wines of great quality, essentially rosés.
