Terroir

Biston-Brillette, a typical Moulis terroir

The terroir of the Moulis appellation includes Pliocene gravel (type 1) near Bouqueyran, clayey-limestone soil from the Tertiary era near the market town, and middle-terrace glacial gravel (type 3) from Brillette to Maucaillou. With these diverse terroirs, the “signature” of the Château Biston-Brillette terroir lies in even balance between the gravel terroirs and the marl-clay-limestone terroirs surrounding the village of Moulis. The finesse and elegance of wines from gravel soils and the strength and colour of wines from clayey-limestone soils combine to offer Château Biston-Brillette a specificity much appreciated by wine-lovers.
