  • Introduction

    • This parcel is situated in the northern part of the village just before the valley. This climat’s name is derived from “La Val”, the term used in the Middle Ages to refer to a low point in the land, a topographic rift. Along with “Les Cazetiers” and “Clos Saint-Jacques”, this climat is considered to be one of the 3 best Premiers Crus in Gevrey. The Domaine purchased this parcel in late 2013.
