Located at the top of the appellation, just below 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, in the part historically known as "Les Grands Suchots".

Lachaux's reds are 100% whole cluster. Macerations are noteworthy for their brevity. In 2019, they ranged from 9 to 12 days. In 2020, some lasted only 6 days. They are also noteworthy for their lack of extraction. All the reds in 2019 were punched down only twice by foot. There is a daily pump over. The reds were aged in older barrels, with the exception of the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru les Boudots and the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots, each having one new Stockinger barrel, or 20% of the cuvées. Total sulfur at bottling ranges between 23 and 38ppm.
