The average planting density is 5,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is about 30 years. The grape varieties are divided between Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec for the most classic of the region. We have also worked on the endemic grape varieties of the region and have planted Merille (also known as Perigord) which is one of the only indigenous grape varieties of the Dordogne. We also have Fers Servadous or Braucol which are found throughout the South West.  More recently we have planted more fun varieties for the region with Pinots Noirs, Trousseau and Poulsard more related to personal tastes for light and fresh wines.
