Flagey-Echezeaux, located along the “Route des Grands Crus”, is an appellation that exclusively produces Grand Cru wines, including our "Champs traversins". The appellation’s name is derived from the term "Chezeaux", which refers to the grouping together of the surrounding hamlets. Our plot is located at an altitude of 300 metres, the vines faces east for optimal exposure to the sun and are planted in very light soil on a steep slope .
