Les Roques and the surrounding villages benefit from clay and limestone soils and ferruginous, among the richest in the world for very low yield and an of rich, fine and mineral soil. The terroir of Roques is today, without a doubt, the most famous of them. They studied over 5000 soil analysis carried out in Europe and the world. Following this, they made the choice of Cahors plateau for their vineyards.
