Clay-limestone on the steep slopes.
These are stony, well-drained soils,
among the best in the appellation,
which produce well-structured wines
with good aging potential.
Clays on the intermediate flats:
these are light, permeable soils
that heat up quickly,
giving supple, easy-to-drink wines.
Depending on the area,
these clays can be beige, red,
gravel or alios-based, etc.
Smooth pebbles on the dominant hilltops.
these well-drained soils
retain heat and yield silky wines.
