Limestone marl Chateau de Lancyre AOC Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup

Limestone marl

This is the most common type of soil in the Pic Saint Loup appellation area.

It is deep and its structure varies considerably depending on stone content, which is a decisive factor in the soil’s drainage capacity.
The higher the stone content, the less sensitive the soil is to adverse weather conditions such as drought and conversely, excessive rainfall.
