The wide variety of aspects and soils (limestone, flint, clay and loam) create a unique terroir, almost like a miniature appellation in its own right
The mixture of both clay and limestone areas is only one of the aspects that sets the Thénac terroir apart. The altitude plays an essential role, too. The grapevines look as though they’re touching the sky, stood in a permanent breeze that removes the risk of frost and preserves the grapes from the high temperatures. The health and well-being of the grapevines is the priority. They must be able to draw on their resources as much as possible to naturally resist climatic variations.
