Even if the vineyards of the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune are 80% Pinot Noir, it's the Chardonnay variety that is predominant in the best communes of the appellation: Nantoux, Echevronne, Meloisey and La Rochepot.

This parcel is in La Rochepot, on an embankment overlooking and bordering the western part of the Saint-Aubin appellation Le Ban. The name "Sous Éguisons" refers to the cliff above the vineyard. The cliff offers protection from the north winds, which is a significant advantage given how harsh the climate is and how bitter the spring frosts are at this altitude. The natural growth cycle of the vines is also slower and the grapes mature a full week later than at lower levels. These vines are planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare.
