Located in Saint-Hippolyte at the foot of the southern end of the Saint-Émilion plateau, the vineyards sit at an altitude of 60 metres. The fertile clay and silt soils result in an open, forward style of wine. Crop thinning in the spring and leaf plucking in the summer ensures the fruit ripens evenly. Yields from the 30-year-old vines are 45 hectolitres per hectare.
