Comment: some of the villages to the southwest and southeast on the map are not part of the Champagne appellation and therefore don’t have any profiles.
La Ville-sous-Orbais is located on the left bank of the Marne river, which means south of the river. The village is located at Le Surmelin, a river which flows through the southern part of the Terroir de Condé area, and then empties into the Marne River downstreams at Mézy-Moulins. The valley formed by Le Surmelin is called Vallée du Surmelin, and in Champagne terms it consists of the southern part of the two areas Vallée de la Marne Rive Gauche and Terroir de Condé.
