The Clos des Roses vineyard is located just below the village of Pommard, surrounded by stone walls on three sides and the small stream L'Avant Dheune on the other. The official name of the parcel is Rue au Porc (Pig Street), or possibly Rue au Port (Port Street), due to its proximity to water. The Rougeots renamed their walled-in portion of the vineyard for this cuvée. This wine is often graceful and open at an early stage.
