This Cru grows on the great valley of the River Arbia, in the southernmost part of the property. The soil, very distinctive and complex, originates from an ancient river terrace dating back to the Pliocene-Pleistocene epochs. These are silty deposits, little evidence of stone, with the presence of clay, a little limestone and poor in organic matter.
