This walled vineyard or “clos” once belonged to the monks of Cîteaux Abbey. This plot is located in the middle of the Clos de Vougeot (on the Vosne-Romanée side). The soil in the upper part of the clos is a mix of clay and brown gravel soil, and the middle part is also very stony the surface. In the lower part of the vineyard, the soil gets deeper and becomes increasingly rich in clay, which gives firmer structure to the wines.
