The Vinsobres terroir
Domaine Jaume spans 92 hectares at Vinsobres in the Drôme Provençale, classified as a Cru terroir of the Côtes-du-Rhône.
Nestled at the edge of the pre-alps, the village is in the northernmost sector of the southern Rhone.
These valleys are caressed by the early morning wind from the east called the ‘Pontias’, which ensures the good health of the vines.
Le Coteau is a chalky clay terroir at an average altitude of 250 metres, with limestone strata at varying depths and an irregular covering of stones.
Les Collines is a very rugged terroir, geologically distinguished by two valleys that are carved out of the escarpment.
Orientation plays a significant role. The soils are made up in equal parts of clay, sand and alluvial deposits with, to a lesser or greater degree, stony topsoils. The altitude, which is on average 350 metres, can rise to 470 metres on the best exposed parcels.
