Terroir designation of the Côtes de Provence AOC recognized in

2019
The terroir designation bears the name Notre-Dame des Anges, in reference to the highest point in the Massif des Maures (767 m), which is visible throughout the territory, and extends through an extraordinary environment, surrounding the Plaine des Maures National Nature Reserve. The landscape encompasses umbrella pines, oak trees and chestnut groves, and covers 10 communities in the Var department : Les Arcs, Carnoules, Taradeau, Vidauban, Le Cannet-des-Maures, La Garde-Freinet, Le Luc, Les Mayons, Gonfaron and Pignans.

A Mediterranean climate with continental influences

Cut off from any maritime influence by the presence of the Massif des Maures, the Notre-Dame des Anges region is subject to a Mediterranean climate with continental influences, featuring cool, wet winters (900 mm/year) and particular hot, dry summers. The temperature range associated with this climate allows the grapes to reach peak phenolic maturity whilst maintaining the acidity of the berries.

Diverse soils including the red earth typical of Provence

The entire sector is located on the same geological formation, Permian sandstone dating from the Palaeozoic era (the oldest geological remains in the appellation), on which four main types of soils can be found: schist along the edges of the Maures mountain range, sand, pelites whose red colour is one of the visible characteristics of this terroir, old alluvial terraces of the Aille River with their “rounded pebbles” (galets roulés).
