The red hills in the area are one of a kind. The closest description would be the deserts of Tatooine, the fictional planet in Star Wars. The soil is comprised of clay, schist, granite, and decomposed basaltic slate. The soil's deep red color is due to its high content of iron and oxide. Blocks of basalt (black stone) are present from the volcanic eruptions of vallée du Salagou.

All grapes are harvested and fermented separately, aged in neutral oak for 12 months, then blended before bottling.
