Description of the Terroir : The «Clos des Aubépines» is a very particular soil which is brown with a granitic substrate (granitic composition - mica, quartz and feldspaths).
It is a composition of eruptive rocks that crack and crumble to shape rough sand (called granitic arena) with light water retention. The granite degradation level is quite advanced, which allows the release of mineral elements.
This terroir offers lively, expressive and acidulous' wines. They are very delicate and often go along with a sensation of salinity on finish.
