This plot is the south-eastern neighbour of Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru vineyards, and its higher eastern end reaches further up the slopes of Meursault and Saint Aubin. The vineyard, which is east-facing, benefits from the gentle morning sun, giving the grapes time to develop complexity, while cooler overnight influences bring balancing acidity. The vines are grown on a gentle but much-eroded slope of chalk and limestone that absorbs the warmth and reflects it onto the vines, encouraging ripening. The lack of water forces the vine to use more mineral-laden hydration deeper in the soil. The domain practices ˜la lutte raisonnee; sustainable agriculture with a reduced use of chemicals.
