A place where life is good

The vine feels good on our terroir. It is located halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Massif Central. The climate is moderate and the soils are well balanced in limestone, clay and organic matter.

The vine feels good on our terroir. It is located halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Massif Central. The climate is moderate and the soils are well balanced in limestone, clay and organic matter. We have added organic farming to it for 10 years: free of all pesticides, enriched by green manures, deeply balanced by the roots of companion plants and the continuous work of all the "small animals" who explore, search and fertilize it. Our soil is now the best place for a vine plant to hope to sink its roots. The white grape varieties are located on the more calcareous soils, to achieve a particular minerality on Sauvignon. While the Semillon is located on clay soils, which draws its substance and roundness from them. And finally for Merlot, it is located on stony soils. He likes limestone scree to balance the structure and soften the tannins.

Our story

When Guy Cuisset's grandfather bought the estate at the beginning of the 20th century, it was almost abandoned. However, we know that a monastery was once located there (where the name of the village comes from: Monestier). Long before that, man had felt that it would be nice to live there, if we judge by the many prehistoric remains found in the vines.

Other little stories

For decades of cultivation of our lands, we have regularly found carved flints in the vines: bifaces, arrowheads, polished axes, knives... These vestiges of the Upper Palaeolithic period bear witness to the occupation of the region for thousands of years by our distant ancestors. People lived there 20,000 years ago. Our choice of a sustainable and responsible organic culture, respectful of the environment and people, could not be better represented than by one of these tools that has stood the test of time, recalling man's belonging to nature, and our responsibility for what we produce and will leave to future generations.

No stress for our vines. They have a harmonious growth, without deficiencies or excesses, no imbalance. Even the waist has been redesigned to be softer and less traumatic. We set up a dynamic of biological and favourable life. These are the ideal conditions for the vine to give us good grapes.
