The two types of terroir at Château Malherbe
The Malherbe terroir, clinging to the slopes of Cap Bénat, gives its name to the Malherbe wines. The clay-schist soil (red soil) in which our hillside vines are grown produces exceptional white, red and rosé cuvées. The vineyard is fed by underground streams from the Massif des Maures which provides all the water required
The Pointe du Diable terroir faces the sea. This terroir has a sandy soil with ancient alluvial deposits scattered with quartz shards. It produces the exceptional Pointe du Diable white, red and rosé cuvées. The vines benefit from the night-time dews arising from the nearby sea, one of the special features of the Pointe du Diable terroir.
