Soils :
The river Layon dug its way into the fault between the Parisian basin and the Armorican massif.
Therefore, we find a great variety of soils with a predominance of argilo-schisteux soil with quartz inclusions. This minerality often pass into our wines and give them a specific coolness even for the most liquorous ones.
We also have some plots of land with carbonic soils and others with limestone soils.
