Vineyard: Lacoste

The vineyard plots are located on the plain of Bonnieux, at the foot of the oppidum of Lacoste, on calcareous alluvia of the Calavon. Due to its low altitude, this area is marked by winter temperatures below regional averages and cool summer night temperatures, thus favouring the natural acidity of the wines. The geographical position also allows natural ventilation of the site by thermal breezes due to nearby reliefs, thus limiting high morning humidity.

Density of plants 4000 vines/ha (2,5m x 1 m), type of pruning Cordon de Royat for Cabernet, Pinot and whites, Guyot simple for Carmenère. Annual rainfall 580 mm, annual rainfall localised in the months of November, January and March, some summer storms sometimes very violent, temperature range -10° C to 42 ° C.
