Domaine des Ardoisières
The soils at the foot of the Bauges massif in the Alps are of clay-limestone type bringing to the vine quantity of nutrients very beneficial to the quality of the grapes. We distinguish two types of soils. On one hand, rich and deep soils based on limestone, sandy-silt, and red clay. On the other hand, poor and shallow soils, stony, based on schist and mica schist with sandy-clay, where the vine roots reach deep down into the rock to draw water and nutrients.
