The Premier Cru “Le Porusot” covers about 10 hectares and enjoys a south-eastern exposure, which is perfect for a maximum amount of sunlight. The name Porusot comes from the very nature of the soil; indeed, the word is a regional way of naming a place covered with rocks. It is the diminutive of Porroux which finds its origin in the latin word Petrosa (stony place).
