Ranging from the Puyricard plateau to the summit of the Trévaresse massif, between 350 and 450 meters above sea level, the vineyard of Château du Seuil enjoys a lot of sunshine, a diversified terroir particularly favorable to the culture of grapevine: stony and dry stony clay soils with diverse exposures; a hot and dry climate in summer but cool at night; the permanent and beneficial breath of the mistral that reduces the risk of illness; an altitude that limits the alcoholic degree of the wines and gives them a great freshness, especially for whites and rosés.
Entirely registered in the appellation area of Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, it includes the main varieties of the appellation: Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Ugni Blanc, Rolle.
Created patiently over the past 40 years, the Château du Seuil vineyard has 35% of old vines. The estate is today the subject of a new development in the context of sustainable agriculture based on observation, prevention and respect of the soil.

AGES OF VINES
BEHIND THE WINES
Mr and Mrs Daussun
Before Jeannine and Philippe Carreau Gaschereau did take over the estate in 1973, they cultivated olive trees, almond trees and vines. From then on, the vine growers undertake a vast restructuring program and orient it towards viticulture. Since July 2014, the domain belongs to Mr. and Mrs. DAUSSUN.
