The soft and undulating terraces are elevated off the valley floor (again following the example of many of the grand crus in Burgundy). This offers frost protection and ensures that the soils are free-draining. The terraces are slightly sloping and are all oriented towards the north-east. This ensures that the soils receive good sun, both in the morning and throughout the day. The terraces in the vicinity of Clarks Road have always been known for their warm microclimate - a determined defence against frost.
