Pinot Noir is the red wine grape of Burgundy, now adopted (and feverishly studied) in wine regions all over the world.

Clos du Val is a Premier Cru vineyard of Auxey-Duresses in the Cote de Beaune sub-region of Burgundy. It takes its name (Clos of the Valley) from its location on the upper slopes of the Montagne de Bourdon hillside, overlooking the Saint-Romain Valley below.
This walled (clos) vineyard represents only a very small strip of vines, sandwiched between the larger Climat du Val and Breterins Premier Cru sites. However, it enjoys an excellent south and south-east aspect, enabling the vines to make the most of the available sunlight and warmth in this marginal climate.
