Since arriving in Spain, Franck Massard was fascinated by the landscape of the Priorat region, where the sites are a contrast between the enigmatic and the fabulous. He began his project in the region in 2004, in the village of El Molar, where he bought a plot with an old friend. After a while they moved to Poboleda, situated at a higher altitude, with the clear objective of developing a style of more fresh and elegant wine.
The vineyard is located 30 minutes from Tarragona and 18 kilometers from the sea. It is nestled in an amphitheater between 300 and 550 meters above sea level, in one of the coolest areas of Priorat. In the morning, a North wind called Cierzo blows cool and dry and in the mid-afternoon the Garbí wind starts blowing. This comes from the coast and softens the temperature. The synergy of both winds, combined with the altitude at which the vineyard is located, provides a healthy environment. The significant temperature variation between day and night is essential to the development of the grapes as it makes it slower and therefore means the harvest date is later. Thus, the accumulation of aromatic compounds favors a natural freshness and good acidity in the grapes.
The soil is geologically very old. Experts call it Paleozoic bedrock, which is older than 400 million years of age. The Priorat slates are the oldest found in Catalonia. The slate floor or llicorella is characteristic of Priorat, but there is some heterogeneity in soils with more clay areas, as well as granite and limestone.
