Though there are numerous walled vineyards in Burgundy, Clos des Marechaudes is unique as it is the only one with two levels of appellation (Corton Grand Cru and Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru, covering and of the surface area respectively) and this within just 2 hectares. All of the vines in this monopole belonging to Domaine du Pavillon were planted in the early 1950s. The upper part, with a slope of approximately 30 degrees, faces east/south-east and the soil is composed of brown limestone overlying scree. This brings together the ideal conditions necessary to produce our Grand Cru Clos des Marechaudes. Proximity to the parent rock, shallow soil, a high proportion of clay and limestone are all factors that enable this vineyard to produce wines that combine finesse and power harmoniously. Of the vineyards on the Corton hill, it is said that this is one of the ones to receive the most sunshine, meaning that the vines are generally among the earliest to flower. ”En Mareschaut” is derived fromthe Old French term maresche (marsh). The lower parts of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny were marshy due to their proximity to the Lauve spring. Major drainage work was undertaken to dry up the land and make it suitable for planting vines.
