guillemet_02 guillemet_01At Château du Grand Mouëys, the terroir is a harmonious blend of microclimate, mineral-rich clay-gravel soils, and rolling hills that rise to the elevation where our vines are grown. Each aspect contributes to the quality of the grapes.

White wine

Our white wine plots are nestled on sandy-clay-limestone plateaus. These soils greatly minimize the risk of rot and contribute to a particularly fresh aromatic profile, especially in Sauvignon Blanc.

Red wine

Our red wine plots are situated on south or south-west faced hill sides with sometimes steep slopes, providing the ideal exposure for reaching phenolic maturity. The clay-gravel soils allow for proper hydration and fully maturation of our vines.
