The soils in Champagne is predominantly limestone with a high level of chalk. This consists of granules of calcite formed from the fragile shells of marine micro-organisms. The outcrops of sedimentary rock are also composed of chalk, marl and limestone. This type of soil provides good drainage and also imparts that particular mineral flavour found in certain Champagne wines.
