The Crozes Hermitage Laurus is made of two complementary terroirs of the appellation : to the North, in the village of Gervans, granitic soils and, to the South, in the village of Mercurol, clay soils covered with small pebbles. This results in a very elegant wine.
Plots were selected on the two maine terroirs of the AOP:
- to the North, in the village of Gervans, granitic soils (150m of altitude – West exposure) give the wine its mineral quality.
- to the South, in the village de Mercurol, clay soils covered with small pebbles on ancient alluvial terraces of the Rhône river (100m of altitude - South/Southwest exposure) give the wine its structure and fruit.
