SAINTE VICTOIRE
Terroir
Located in the upper basin of the Arc, the terroir is composed of scree and clay-sandstone from the Late Cretaceous period, with colluvial deposits from the surrounding hills. The etymology of the name "Maupague" (meaning "giving little"), and the geological characteristics of the soil make this property particularly well-suited to the growing of grapes; there have been vines here for many generations.
