Les Cailles: This 3.81-hectare Premier Cru climat lies in the southern part of the commune of Nuits-St-Georges along the border with Premeaux-Prissy, just north of Les Saint Georges. Facing east and lying at 250-260 meters, this hillside vineyard slopes gently at 7-8%. The topsoil is rich and very stony with a mixture of limestone, sand and clay. The subsoil is Comblanchien and oolitic limestone. The name does not suggest the presence of quail, but is rather a contraction of cailloux, meaning stones.
