This grand cru is situated in a gently sloping area. It is one of the best sun bathed and earliest areas of Gevrey-Chambertin, it very often reaches perfect maturity a few days before the Chambertin. Its soil consists of white limestone boulders; their permeability ensures perfect drainage. At the top of this area, some rock tips emerge from this marly limestone substratum.
