Jean Maurice Raffault

The vineyard is situated on a plateau at the summit of the hills overlooking the Vienne. The site is the highest point between the Vienne and Loire Rivers, is well exposed to the sun's rays, and was home to many windmills in the 19th century. Vines were planted in this vineyard as early as the 15th century. The soil in the Picasses vineyard is a blend of limestone and clay with small stones, which gives the wine its intensity and structure.
