Chambolle Musigny.

La Combe d'Orveau

This parcel within the village appellation of Chambolle Musigny is situated at the southern limit of the territories of Chambolle and Vosne Romanée in the locality of the Combe d'Orveau. It was bequeathed by Louis Gros on his death in 1951 to his son François.

The origin of the word "Orveau" comes from "Val d'Or" (small golden vale). East facing, this coomb opens onto the anticlinal valley where Echezeaux, Grands Echezeaux and Clos de Vougeot are situated.

The climate is more extreme due to its geographical situation (colder in winter, hotter in summer). The wooded surroundings, which are battling erosion, contribute to a more humid autumn. This 1.10 ha parcel is composed equally of 45 year old vines and 6 year old vines. The soil, which is very stony, rich in scree and extremely fine-grained, rests on a substrata of white marl.
