The Clos de Chateau des Ducs is located in Volnay, in the humble garden of the Lafarge Domain—making this hidden gem a true clos as well as a true monopole. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 290 meters. The slope is very gentle. It faces southeast. The vineyard is quiet and small with lush green trees, and there are even a few wandering chickens.

The walls of the clos provide protection in many ways—they protect the soils from washing away or receiving outside material, and they also protect the vines from wind and frost, making this vineyard one of the warmest and often one of the first to be harvested. Frédéric believes that the well-drained soils make for lighter, softer wines.
