Ingrid & Jean-Philippe Bouchet cultivate vines on 5-hectares in Cairanne, oriented on the northwestern slope of the Col du Débat. A natural drainage of the vines occurs thanks to the direct exposure to the Mistral wind. The plots are located between 200 and 280 meters above sea level, on mainly clay-limestone soils.
They also work 10 hectares of vines around their farm which were added in Vaison la Romaine in 2012. The soil is mainly sandy in Vaison la Romaine, and allows for the production of wines with a different structure than the wines of Cairanne. Bottling is done according to the lunar calendar.
