This locality is certainly one of the best known in Gevrey-Chambertin. The vineyard faces south-south-east and was planted on the bedrock with about twenty centimetres of pebbles and clay soil.
There is a very particular microclimate here – very hot during the day and cold at night; the Combe de Lavaux is very close. The vines on the plot are already ancient – between 80 and 90 years old.
They are often harvested last because the grapes take longer to ripen despite prolonged exposure to the sun; freshness at night is not unusual. The vineyard covers 0.1786 hectare.
