    THE STORY: The vineyards are situatued on poor soil comprising a mixture of siliceous pebbles (gravel), sand and clay. This soil provides natural drainage and the vine roots can go deep into the ground to look for the nutrients and cool tempratures they need for development. The gravel also absorbs the sun during the day and releases it at night, stabilizing the temprature of the vineyard. The Chateau is run by Denis Lurton. He has devoted himself to complete authenticity working the vine. He recieved the tasting diploma from the Faculty of Oenology at the Bordeaux University. Through observation and daily practice, he tries to maintain his wine at the highest level of quality.
