The vineyard
The Clos de la Maréchale has a surface of 9 hectares, 76 ares.  It is the largest monopole (an appellation belonging to a single owner) in the Côte d'Or.  The average age of the vines in 2009 is about 45 years old.
 
The soil
The geological stratum on which the Clos de la Maréchale is situated plunges wellbelow the surface of the soil further south, marking the end of the Côte de Nuits, only to reappear in Le Montrachet between Puligny and Chassagne. Therefore one is not surprised to find the same qualities of power and longevity in these wines.
 
The Wine
They are wines that always need 5 to 10 years of ageing before expressing their typically floral character : "The bouquet of the 1er crus of Premeaux is remarkable and persistent : one finds the aroma of iris mingled with raspberries. Even more so, that of white lilac".
