LES CAPUCINS is produced on a great terroir situated on limestone soils at the foothills of Larzac (a high plateau at 700-950 meters high).
In summer, during nights, fresh air comes from Larzac and gives coolness as a contrast to the high temperatures of the day.
The grapes thus achieve an excellent phenolic maturity.
