Terroir: “the total natural environment of any viticultural site, defined in terms of climate, sunlight, geography, and soil water relations”, “To the extent that terroirs remain unique, and poorly understood,” write the authors of the Oxford Companion to Wine, “one can therefore hope that they will continue to help mould the infinite variety and individuality of the best wines, giving the special nuances of character that make wine such a fascinating study for wine-maker and consumer alike. Vivent les différences!”
