Located immediately west of Meursault, the village of Saint-Romain has its origins in the Neolithic era. It occupies a higher position in the Côte de Beaune, at the foot of its high cliff which protects it from the north winds in particular. The landscape opens out here in broad perspectives. It is one of the first Celtic and Gallo-Roman vine sanctuaries in Burgundy. For those who love geology, we are in the land of Lias. Established in 1947, the Appellation takes a position on the slope, taking advantage of its softening and excellent soils, between 280 and 400 m above sea level. In this marly and limestone ensemble, clayey bands are ideal for Chardonnay.

This cuvée comes from the “En Poillange” and “La Périère” plots, to the south of the appellation, and facing east, which allows the grapes to ripen well. The rather high altitude gives the wine great freshness.
