LE DOMAINE DES FINES CAILLOTTES
The soil of our vineyard was formed during the Jurassic period (140 - 160 million years ago), except on the siliceous soils formed during the Cretaceous period (113 million years ago). These are the calcareous sea deposits which contain fossils (the remains of sea shells and organisms). The climate was tropical during this era as our region was located at the latitude of today's Africa.
