The wines in the area lean more towards Atlantic than Mediterranean build, much like those of Bordeaux.  

The terroir of Southwest France varies as far and wide as the wines made there. The Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean give the area a mostly maritime climate, although the inlands are more continental – therefore hotter and drier. The rivers Tarn, Lot, Garonne, and Dordogne variety to the soil types of the region, as do vineyards such as Bearn that lie on the slopes of the Pyrénées (with its different altitudes, aspects, and soil stone types.
