The orientation varies from east to southeast to directly south. Wine from Beaune was known in the past for being lightbodied. Today it is generous and full-bodied, ideal for keeping. The Premiers Crus represent three-fourths of the planted area, or about 410 ha. The hillsides spread between 220 and 350 m in altitude facing the rising sun, or southeast. 42 vineyards are classified as Premiers Crus.

Soil: brown limestone, white and yellow marl on the higher ground; ferruginous gravel downhill and limestone with yellow and red clay on the piedmont plains. Les Aigrots is a parcel classified Premier Cru which is found in the southern part of the designation, on the upper hillside of Saint Désirée Mountain, between the Clos des Mouches and Champs-Pimont parcels. The vineyard spreads over nearly 18 ha 63 ares 65 ca; at an altitude between 250 and 300 m.

Exposure is east - northeast and the terroir is mostly argilo-calcareous. Two-thirds of this climat is planted with Pinot Noir, the remaining third is planted in Chardonnay..
