Chagnot, the Burgundian diminutive of Châgne from the Old French noun Chasne “oak”, can be found in two neighbouring lieux-dits at Ladoix-Serrigny: Les Chagnots and Clos des Chagnots, bordering the D974 Dijon to Beaune road that goes through the village. Indeed, these were places where oak trees were plentiful.

The vineyard plot(s)
The plots are made up of old vines from massal selection and young vines some of which are clonal. The average age of the vines is 35 years.
The soil and subsoil
Clayey limestone soil: scree and silt on stony ground locally called “chailles” emanating from the Buisson valley. This geology allows good drainage thus allowing an earlier and more rapid ripening of the grapes.
According to the vintage conditions.
Excellent site at the bottom of the Corton hill at an altitude of around 250 metres on a gentle, south-facing slope.
