This vineyard was initially founded by monks at the nearby Cîteaux Abbey and lies at the foot of the Clos de la Roche parcel (in the Grand Cru growing area). This land has been officially certified as lying in the Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru appellation zone, with a total area of 4.50 hectares.
It was nearly entirely replanted following heavy soil erosion during the 1963 season. The presence of winter cover crops serves to avoid this kind of soil disaster thanks to surface roots that keep the ground from eroding. In addition, the humus input into the soil offers attractive properties. This parcel spans 2 hectares and yields production of 80 hectolitres (10,000 bottles). The vine is cared for using methods that best suit the particular soil and varietal. Pruning follows the simple Guyot cane technique.
A resolutely red color. The bouquet features tremendous complexity, within general the fruitier aromas prevailing during the earlier years before giving way to some of the meatier tones. Spicier fragrances effuse throughout aging, instilling a unique and special character associated with Côte de Nuits wines. Classic.
