The grapes of two of the most prized parcels of the village are assembled for this wine. Les Breterins is a south-facing parcel with light, white soil prompting earlier ripeness and wines abundant with fruit. Les Duresses is southeast facing with brown clay earthgiving more dense, and tannic results. The complementarity of these two parcels results in a serious, powerful wine.

On this sloped south-facing parcel that has particular geology for this section of vineyard, the vines are 40 years old on the average. It is one of the most calcareous areas of the Côte de Beaune (30% active limestone).

Rich with small fruit, the wines can generally be drunk quite young, and yet can age easily for up to 10 years.
