Driven by a passion for soil and life

Around 157 million years ago, our region had a tropical climate and was covered by a shallow ocean. The soil that we see here today, known as Kimmeridgian soil, is made up of very compact layers of limestone and clayey marl that contain an abundance of fossilised marine organisms.

This geological foundation is where our vines draw the essence of our terroir from. Biodynamics has helped to encourage the growth of roots down to this layer of rock. Here they can draw on the fossilised minerals and nutrients, which is what gives our champagnes their characteristic minerality and slight saltiness.

This particularity adds a certain delicacy to our Pinot Noirs and a purity and minerality to all our grape varieties.
