Article 1460 of the Civil Code provides:

A thing is determinate when it is particularly designated or physically segregated from all others of the same class.

The requisite that a thing be determinate is satisfied if at the time of the contract is entered into, the thing is capable of being made determinate without the necessity of a new or further agreement between the parties.
