This site is named "Sous le bois de Noël et Belles Filles".
This name is almost an ode to the legendary beauty of the nuns who used to stroll in these fields from their convent in Changey, above Pernand.
On a gradient of 8/10% of limestone rock and shallow, red-ochre topsoil of alluvium and ferruginous clay.
29 ares at an altitude of between 280 and 380 meters, planted in 1959, 1985 and 2000 on a slope due east exposed to the morning sun.

Ruby-red in colour with aromas of red fruit and cassis ; in the mouth, it is fresh, delicate and with fine tannins. The finish is mineral and saline, typical of the Pernand slopes.

- The mild Winter meant that vegetation growth started early; we began debudding mid-April and with fine sunny weather the vine developed and flourished gradually in good conditions. The Summer was very dry which accelerated the maturing process with a lower yield but a high aromatic concentration for the Pinot Noir grape; for the Chardonnay however, the conditions were satisfactory for both growth and maturity. The grape harvest commenced on 20 August. The red wines are deep, bright in colour, they reflect red fruit together with full and elegant tannins.
