Terroir: Alain’s knowledge of geology allowed him to select the optimum terroir for cultivation and Le Domaine de la Bouvaude is set on sandstone that was deposited by the Mediterranean Sea over 20 million years ago and is some 600m deep. The effect of the nearby Rhone River adds clay and limestone to the soil mix, and the surrounding Alps add not only altitude of around 500m – helping to mediate average temperatures – but also protect the vineyards from harsh winds and too much heat, (a problem exacerbated for many by Global Warming.)

The soils on the slopes are light and infertile, and the vine must strain to reach the nutrients it needs. This extra stress means a smaller overall production, but of a much more concentrated and higher quality juice.
As you walk around the beautiful surroundings, you will no doubt notice strange ripple marks at the edge of the vineyards. These are simple reminders of what once was; the old beach of the Mediterranean Sea.
