The 13 hectares of vineyards have been growing on the clay limestone here for over a century.
The ideal situation, halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains (about 50 kms away) provides an exceptional microclimate.
Red Grape Varieties: The tannat grape is the basis for the appellation. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon White Grape Varieties: Moncada Raffiat, a very old grape of which I am the only person to grow it in the Bearn wine area.
