The field is located in the best part of the appellations "COTEAUX DU LAYON" and "SAVENNIERES".The area profits from a dry climate.The vines cling to an abrupt slope,south oriented,made of eruptive rocks, on the"PIERRE BISE" cliff which overhangs the Layon river.
The 18ha of vines,mainly old and rehabilited,are planted with only noble varieties,cultivated without manuring,insecticides,toxic or non biodegradable products.
Viticultural methods adapted to each plot and respectful of the environment(with optima energetical,toxicological,microbiological status)and a non artificial and smooth wine making to avoid aromas oydation and destruction allow the full expression of these splendid "terroirs".
