Is a more towards the southern slopes towards Volnay. The soils are the same type as the northern vineyards, brown with a mix of limestone. In the south the soils are deeper and produce a more powerful and tannic style of wine with Rugiens considered the best vineyard in this area. Jean-Luc’s vineyard plot of 53 Ares abuts the classified 1er Cru Rugiens and the vines are 70 years old. Production is about 1.6 tonnes producing 1,500 bottles. The grapes are destemmed, macerated for 15-20 days before fermentation with natural yeasts and the oak regime is one-third new. When Jean-Luc bought his piece which is on the extreme right edge of the 1er Cru on the village side it was thought to be part of the classified area, but later it proved not to be so. The style is complex and muscular with plenty of minerality and black fruits: the vineyard name itself means very red in colour. These are large-scale and concentrated wines.
