This 125-acre Grand Cru vineyard faces east on a range of soils, from chalky and stony clay on the higher parts of the slope to moist, rich, compact soils on the lower slope. Jadot owns just over 5 acres of the Clos. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented for up to 4 weeks in tanks, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 18 months.
