Soils

Michel Thomas et Fils

Les Caillottes is gravel and limestone. Flinty, silex-clay soil is found in the eastern vineyards.

Each type of soil produces wines of differing character.

Some producers like to blend wines from the three soils for balance, while others prefer to let the character of the terroir determine the character of the wine.

Although it is far from common practice, some producers will age exceptional wines in wood.

These wines develop an exceptionally rich flavor and a pungent floral bouquet after several years in the bottle.
