The vineyard plot(s)
Vines from old massal selections are planted alongside younger vines some of which are from clonal selections. The average age of the vines is around 50 years.
The soil and subsoil
Complex, clayey limestone soil slope formation arising from modification of the substrate with various screes and colluvial silts over “chailles” (hard little (lime)stones). These stones come from the alluvial fan of Buisson and ensure these relatively fertile grounds good drainage and therefore early grape ripening.
According to the vintage conditions.
These vines are located at an altitude of around 250 m at the foot of the Corton hill. A gentle slope facing south-west.
