Located on the best slopes of the plateau which dominates the Côte de Nuits to the west, this appellation is located in 19 municipalities of the Côte d'Or department at an altitude of 300 – 400 meters. This vineyard is very old, it exists in a mention of a vineyard donation to Meuilley in a writing dating from the 8th century. Clay-limestone soil in the first two thirds then silt and white marl in the upper third of the plot. The vine is exposed due south.

The grapes are harvested by hand, sorted and 50% destemmed. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in open wooden vats. The extraction of aromas, tannins and colour is obtained by traditional pumping over and punching down (no yeast added, enzymes or heating). The maceration lasts approx. 3 to 4 weeks. Free-run wine and first press are blended. The aging of 12 months is done in old oak barrels in order for the purity and minerality specific to each origin to express
