Details

We work with this beautiful Vertus terroir, listed as Premier Cru. A “complete” terroir, due to its geological features. The soils, mostly calcareous, contain very little clay, with areas of pure chalk, and there are therefore three different types of soils: brown topsoil over chalk, rendzine over chalk and brown topsoil over chalky gravel. Exposure to the sun is also an essential factor for the diversity of the terroir and Vertus enjoys three different exposures: East, South and South-East. Therefore we operate a very strict selection of our plots with a separate vinification of the grapes coming from about thirty “lieux-dits” located in Vertus Premier Cru only. This mosaic of expressions gives specific personalities and identities to each of the blends in our cuvées. Moreover, we are fortunate in having a further advantage: the average age of our vines is over 40 years. Moreover, this vineyard was mostly grafted by massal selection by our grandfather Albert since 1930. A real advantage which brings regularity and complexity to our wines. The perfect age to best extract the salts and minerals from the soil. Our soils are fed with compost, some of the vineyards are ploughed and some are grassed over for better protection. - Winery Note
