The  Soil

The  Château de la Noblesse  extends continuously over approximately 14 hectares, exposed to the rising sun. The soil  is  clayey  and  chalky  (the origin  of  the  name  of  the  communal  road),  which means   that  the  soil  must be  worked  at  the right  time. (The  soil must  not  be  too  wet  as  it  will   stick   to the  implements,  nor  too  dry  o r it  will  become  rock  hard.)   It   is  necessary  to plough  frequently  in  Summer,   otherwise  there  is   too  much  evaporation  from  the  cracks in the   earth  due  to  its  retractation.


  THE VINE PLANTS :
For  black grapes   with  green  pulp,  the  plants  consist  mainly of :

For  green  grapes,  the  vines  are :


  THE CLIMATE :

Situated  in  the  basin  of  Le  Beausset,  we  benefit   from  a  maximum  of  sunshine  with  very  little rain,  which  means  that  the  vintners  must  work  the  soil  or  remove  some  of  the  grapes  at  the  beginning  of  Summer (green  or  unripe  grape  harvest ),  in  order  to  prevent  the  vines from  suffering  and  to enable  them  to  bring  their  grapes  to  maturity.
