Gradually, over four generations, the estate has been built up in this rugged terrain.
There are three main soil types, each matched with its best corresponding varietal:
the soils of the Montagnieu area are white marl clay, perfect for Altess (Roussette)
and Mondeuse; the silica and limestone soils of moraine hillside slopes perfect for Chardonnay;
and finally the clay and limestone mountain scree soils where Pinot Noir excels.
Teaching Moment: What's scree? Scree is a collection of broken rock fragments at the base of crags,
mountain cliffs, volcanoes or valley shoulders that has accumulated through periodic rockfall
from adjacent cliff faces. Landforms associated with these materials are often called talus deposits.
