Terroir designation of the Côtes de Provence AOC recognized in

2008
The vineyards of this terroir designation are located on the coastal headland, to the southWest of the Massif des Maures. The vines grow across from the sea, facing the Golden Isles: Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Le Levant. There are four Var communes within the boundaries of the Côtes de Provence La Londe designation: Bormes-les-Mimosas (partially), La Crau (partially), Hyères and La Londe-les-Maures.

Mild climate of the seaside

The immediate proximity of the Mediterranean Sea determines the climate specific to this sector. Its winter and summer temperatures are less pronounced. Annual precipitation is particularly low (less than 700 mm/year). There is plenty of sunshine, and the sea breeze is nearly constant and varies greatly.

Succession of phyllades

This terroir dotted with outcroppings of rock counts four soil types, all marked by phyllades, meaning schist hardened by metamorphism in structural sheets, similar to slate: shallow soil on stony phyllades, sloping colluvial soil on more or less stony phyllades, colluvial soil in zones of subsidence with quartzite, sandstone and phyllade stones, and ancient alluvial soil with quartzite, sandstone and phyllade stones.
