This climat is situated in the central part of the Grand Cru hillside and its very shape is that of a valley, hence its name. As a result, it is less homogenous in its exposure than some of the other climats, and its identity is made up from these varied angles and from the depth of its clay-limestone soils over a marl base. 

Bordering on Les Clos, it can have even greater power, with a four-square character. It also tends to be more floral and fruity than mineral.
