A preserved vineyard
Thanks to a South orientation, Bel air’s vines enjoy an abundant sunshine, which represents about 1600 hours of sun per year.
At the crossroads of the last oceanic influences and the south winds along the Rhone Valley, this climate provides a continuous and natural air renewal to the vineyard estate.
The vineyard lies on valleys and Jurassic faults, enjoying a 7 ha continuous clay-limestone soil.
The heat is absorbed by the stones during the day, and released at night, which keeps the grape vines at a constant temperature and helps grape ripening.
Bel Air vineyard is composed of 4 grape varieties :
Chardonnay 70 %
Pinot Noir 10 %
Mondeuse 15 %
Roussane 5 %
The vineyard is certified “High Environmental Value” on a preserved land isolated from any intensive agriculture or outside pollution.
