“Guillaume D’Angerville clearly adopted a Jurassic sensibility and is poised to do great things there.”
The soils in the Jura region are composed of Jurassic limestone, red and grey shale, clay and marl-stone. The Jurassic period was named after Jura because the region's limestone mountains are representative of the geological developments which occurred 145 million to 200 million years ago. As a result, two layers of shale, red and grey were covered with Bajocian limestone during the middle of this era.
