The terroir of the Coteaux d'Ensérune is characterised by sedimentary rocks combining sandstone and sandy marls (sedimentary rocks combining clay/limestones/sand). This geological formation, which is original in this region, is the result of marine sedimentation that rose during local tectonic movements in the Tertiary period.

The highly filtering subsoil is associated with a cultivation technique that encourages deep rooting. The exposure of the vines on the plateau and the north-facing slope, coupled with the dominant position of the plots subjected to the various winds, in particular the "marine", gives a late character to the terroir.

The alternation of hot days and cool nights allows a progressive ripening of the berries preserving the varietal aromas and maintaining a good level of acidity.

The Domaine de Soustres is located on a puech (hill). The terroir is divided between a sandy plateau on limestone subsoil and clayey limestone slopes. The terroir of the Domaine de Soustres is characterized by a singular geological formation dating from the Miocene (-25 to -5 million years) with sedimentary rocks combining sandstone and sandy marls (clay/limestone/sand). The vines are planted and cultivated to go deep into the water and mineral resources.

The vineyard is located on the slopes of the Oppidum d'Enserune. Dominating the region, it offers the vines an exceptional microclimate between the mild Mediterranean and the air currents coming from the Cévennes. The Greeks and the Romans had developed their city on this Oppidum to take advantage of this singular microclimate.

This climatic configuration has an impact on the quality of the grapes and gives the wines a particular subtlety. The Mediterranean sun is softened by the winds. At the height of summer, night temperatures drop and slow down the ripening of the berries due to aerological movements and the topography (hillsides and plateau). The varietal aromatic potential is preserved as well as the acid potential.
