This very steep plot of land borders the southern wall of the famous "Clos des Lambrays", from which it is separated by the old "Route de Vergy", a very ancient road which joined Morey to the hillock of Vergy in a straight line.
In this place, the "Château des sires of Vergy" and "St Vivant abbey" were built. They were dominant powers in the region from the 12th-18th centuries.
This locality was completely regrouped and replanted in the 1980's. It is located on Comblanchien limestone covered by 30 to 35cm of a clayey and very stony soil. These soils, which are light and have a good filtering potential, give soft and very fine wines, very elegant.
A demand has been made for a 1er cru classification and is being studied by the INAO – French National Institute for AOC's and AOVDQ's.
Michel bought the vine when it was 3 year's old in 1995. The first vintage to be sold under this appellation is the 2000.
