Clos Roussots is one of the two large premier cru vineyards that dominate the the eastern part of the village appellation. Planted in 1990, it is located above La Fussière and benefits from south/southeast exposure which ensures full ripening. The soils are composed of some gray and blue marl on top of the classic limestone & clay of the Côte d’Or. This vineyard is plowed entirely by horse to minimize the impact on the soil structure, flora and fauna.
Minerals are more prominent in this wine than others from the domaine due to higher elevation and thinner topsoil. The fruit is high-toned with cherry components melded with earth and minerals.
