Pointe du Diable, coastal vineyard

The coastal Pointe du Diable terroir, with a strong maritime climate, includes many plots with a sandy soil made up of ancient alluvial deposits scattered with quartz shards. The Pointe du Diable cuvée produces wines reminiscent of sea breezes that are ideal for drinking with shellfish and grilled fish. This unique terroir creates lively red, white and rosé wines with a long finish and freshness from the excellent balance between fruit and acidity.
