Viticulture

60% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne. Harvest is conducted entirely by hand using small bins. Several of the parcels are on steep slopes so mechanical harvesting is not an option.40 hectoliters/hectare yields on average for Méribets.

Soil

Marsanne and Roussanne are planted in Les Rouasses which has high clay content, and the lieu-dit Les Côtes, which is predominantly schist.
