This parcel is located next to the GROS family parcel of RICHEBOURG in the north.
The draining capacity of the place may explain its name: the natural vegetation would be quickly "burned" during summer because of the dryness of the soil. The soil is very stony on a 30 to 35cm thickness, and the subsoil is made of hard limestone (similar to Prémeaux stones).
This wine offers a great minerality; it is similar to Richebourg from which it is separated only by a 3m-wide lane. But the soil, which is not as thick as the Richebourg's, brings more softness to the tannins and makes it more rapidly accessible.
