Unlike Burgundy and Bordeaux, the Rhône does not have an official cru (vineyard) classification system. There are, however, lieux-dits, “named places” or place names that denote vineyard sites and plots within each appellation. Chapoutier owns some of the most famous plots in the Rhône, including 34 hectares within the tiny Hermitage appellation. This collection of highly sought after wines is coined "Selections Parcellaires". These exceptional wines are created organically and biodinamically and are imported to the United States once per year.

This vineyard, a traditional "lieu-dit," has long been the source of grapes for Chapoutier's La Bernardine proprietary wine. Its vines have matured to a minimal-yield level (15 HL/HA), and it is capable of producing its own great wine. About half the age of Barbe Rac, and a bit lower in elevation, its spicy nose and deep red-fruit flavors make a distinctive statement of dense Grenache intensity. An immediate hit in its first vintage, 1998, it will continue to make waves as the vines show further maturity.
