Located in the Mosson Valley in Vailhauquès and facing South-East, the soils stem from alluvial deposits dating back to the Quaternary period over sandy-textured marl interspersed with Eocene sandstone layers.
The cool valley temperatures allow the Merlot to ripen slowly and reach peak ripeness, promoting substantial aromatic complexity. The red soils are fertile and rich in calcium, iron and other minerals, providing nourishment for Montlobre vines.
Some vineyard blocks climb up over the surrounding garrigue where Merlot rules the roost. .
