Glazed east of Pomerol, the appellation covers 5,400 hectares of very heterogeneous soils (ranging from limestone plateau to clay-limestone coast) and grape varieties. The 3 main grape varieties are Merlot, which remains the majority with 60% of the grape varieties, Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). All these variables lead to a great diversity of styles with wines that can be full-bodied and robust but also much more finesse.
