In a green and peaceful valley between the Côte De Nuits and the Côte De Beaune, the Pernand-Vergelesses vineyard nestles at the foot of the hill of Corton. The name Les Vergelesses de Pernand figuratively refers to the parcels' long shapes. It stems from the double diminuative suffix of verge or rod which designates both a stick or baton in ancient parlance, as well as an old agrarian measure equalling a quarter of an acre.

Pernand-Vergelesses Les Vergelesses has a particularly fine eastern exposure and is situated along the road going from Beaune towards Pernand. The slope is gentle and erosion is limited by limestone banks. The soil takes on a red colour due to the iron rich ferruginous clay present in the ground.
