This plot follows on from Bougros on a gently sloping site that overlooks its neighbouring climats. Over the limestone bedrock, a compacted layer of clay and relatively deep topsoil bear the vines. 

The wines tend to have differing personalities whether they come from the upper or lower part, bordering on Vaudésir. They are often relatively fleshy and rich, however, their underlying structure is quite taut, and they tend to be less aromatic than most. Reserved and delicate in their youth, wines from Les Preuses are generally subtle and can be exceptionally long-lived.
