The “Sorbief” parcel is locally known as one of the best terroirs in Arbois. It is at least the treasure of the estate’s vineyards where the Savagnin grape variety has been cultivated for generations. Particularly adapted to this late and demanding grape variety, the plot called “La Barodotte” is located in the west of the Domaine and to the southwest of the Arbois village on a lovely hill overlooking the famous “Route des vins du Jura” (the Jura wine road) RN 83:
- Surface: 1,5 Ha
- Full South exposure
- Average age of vines : 32 years (1987)
- Triassic marls sols.
The work in the vines, is based on the respect of the nature and the soil. We practice soil reassembly to aerate the lands subjected to settlement due to moisture, and grass with plants. Such as clover, which, by competing on the vine, can modulate its mineral and water supply and control its vigour and yield.
The Guyot double size is necessary to better control the vine performance.
