From Becky Wasserman & Co. Website:

The Mugneret parcel is located at the top of the vineyard in the unofficial lieu-dit Grands Suchots. This was the name several vignerons including Pascal’s and Charles Lachaux’ grandfathers used to give to the location, in an effort to proudly separate their great Suchots from the lesser ones at the bottom of the slope. Pascal says that his vineyard counts up to 5 specific terroir units despite its small size. A the top the clays are shallow, very stony, and very draining, which can present occasional risks of hydric stress. Towards the middle there is an ancient river bed. The clays are deeper and more water-retentive. The vines never struggle and there is always grass in the rows. At the bottom, there is a resurgence of the bedrock. The soils are very shallow, yet the vines do not struggle here either.
