This plot is made of 2 completely different entities, one on the steep hills of one of the first volcano of chain of the Puys : the « Puy de la Bannière » and the other one on the still very steep hills created by a past seismic activity. Both entities are linked to the « Limagne » fault.
On the first entity we can find basaltic scoria, little bombs (small stones) of pozzolan or basalt. Three islands of vines are planted on this part, the youngest of the pinot noir has about 20 years old and just below 2 old « ladies », an interplant with a multitude of grape varieties which was planted around 1903. There we can find gamay from Auvergne, damas noir (name given to the syrah in Auvergne), chasselas and ugni rose. This plot is facing east.
