Local Terrain and the Range of Grape Varieties at Domaine de l’Arjolle
On the plateaus of the estate, the soil consists of gravelly clays, which is perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Near the hillside, there is also gravelly-clay terroir with limestone, which is ideal for Syrah grapes to give finesse to this variety. The most common soil consists of sandy marls or sandy-lime marls of varying depth.
