The Domaine des 3 Cellier consists of 24 plots spread in the whole Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape appellation, with different terroirs and with a great diversity of wines, each one revealing a different complexity.
A bigger plot (4 ha) found in the north of the appellation is located on the plateau of the Terres Blanches (White lands). This clay limestone soil is covered with a thick layer of rolled peebles which are heated by the sun during the day, benefiting the grapes during night time.
The great majority of the grapes are Grenache (68%), Mourvèdre (11%) and Syrah (7%) but also Clairette Rose, Counoise, Terret Noir, Vaccarèse and Roussane.
