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.
