||The geological layers of Burgundy are responsible for outcroppings of white chalk that can sometimes be seen at the surface. This is perhaps the origin of the name (Enclosure of the Rock), unless the "roche" refers to a Druidic dolmen raised here at the time of the Celts.
|Composition of the land
||Very hard and difficult soil to plough on account of its rocky composition.
||Maceration and vinification tale 2-3 weeks on indigenous yeasts.
