Clos Guirouilh is located precisely in this type of area, around 350 meters in elevation above the village of Lasseube, and it is this terroir that is the key to making the truly distinctive and complex wines that the region is known for. Their 10 hectares of gros manseng, petit manseng, and petit courbu are grown on clay-calcareous soils with lots of yellow sandstone called grès, all directly around the ancient farmhouse that serves both as a winery and home. The vines are all in excess of forty years old and highly trellised to take advantage of the Foehn wind and all of the benefits that great ventilation brings to a vineyard. The soils and elevations contribute to giving the wines their fresh, acidic framework for balance and complexity.
