Located near Castellet, this terroir is extremely windy but also exposed to the sun from sunrise to sunset. The soil is composed of sandstone and marl of the Santonien (75-90 Ma); gypsum can be found on the surface. Although located at the top of the hill, the soil is relatively deep with a lot of clay. The vines mature easily on the hillside favorable to mourvèdre. It is said that mourvèdre likes to look at the sea with its feet in the water (in other words with sufficient water supplies). La Tourtine blends power and elegance. The cuvée is selected from this exceptional terroir of only 5.5 hectares.

Mourvèdre (~85%), with Grenache and Cinsault. Average age of the vines : 45-50 years
