Côtes de Provence Fréjus

Located in the easternmost area of the Côtes de Provence appellation and officially recognized in 2005, Côtes de Provence Fréjus is located on a series of foothills that run from west to east along the Argens coastal river and benefit from direct exposure to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Mediterranean Sea offers almost continuous ventilation and relatively stable heat amplitude. The area experiences some of the heaviest precipitation in the Côtes de Provence appellation (830 to 850mm of rain a year) and average sun exposure (2,800 to 2,900 hours a year).

The Fréjus sector has three specific types of soils: red soils developed on sandy clays; alluvium soil on a Permian bedrock; and sandy soils developed on the weathered metamorphic rocks of the Maures Mountains.
