The finest of these vineyards express the notion of vins de terroirs even more clearly than the Lieux-dits, and the character of grape variety makes way for the eloquence of the terroir. Our forbears had identified and named these vineyards that have a specific character and quality year after year. Most of the vineyards were named by the medieval monks and their superiors.

The area of this vineyard is over 33 hectares at about 220 to 270 metres altitude, facing south-southeast. The soil has chalk with magnesium and chalk in stones, which give the wine a fine smooth, supple acidity.
