THE STORY: The Château du Seuil sits on the Puyricard plateau at an altitude between 350 and 350 meters, the highest site in Aix-en-Provence. Its towers date to the 13th and 16th century and it is classified on the list of French historic monuments. While the estate’s grounds cover nearly 300 hectares, only 55 hectares are planted to vines while another portion is dedicated to olive oil production. Sitting on an ancient fault line, the terroir is incredibly complex: clay, chalk, and rocks, with layers of iron-laden calcaire, and big galet. The vineyards benefit from the dry hot climate which is moderated by the Mistral wind. .
