The soils of Coteaux d’Aix arise from the surrounding calcareous highlands, amongst which include the massifs of the Sainte Victoire and the Trévaresse Mountains. Chalky-clay soils predominantly cover most of the appellation, with however, a certain heterogeneity in the upper soil layers (stone, alluvial…). Depending on the grape varieties planted, various typicities therefore occur in the resulting wines.
In the south, vineyards are in proximity to the Etang de Berre (zero altitude), in the centre, they are spread across the massif of La Trévaresse (350 – 400 metres altitude), and further north they are found around the towns Jouques and Rians.
Harvest begins at the end of August and lasts until the end of October, depending on terroir and grape varieties.
