World-famous wine estate in the Sauternes area (Graves, Bordeaux). In the 1855 Bordeaux classification, the château was the only one to receive the Premier Cru Classé Supérieur rating, making it the highest classified vineyard in Bordeaux. The château towers over the surrounding vineyards of Sauternes on a 75 metre high hill. Its 400th anniversary was celebrated in 1993. During English rule in Bordeaux from 1152 to 1453, it was owned by the English crown and then belonged to the French King Charles VII (1403-1461). A Jacques de Sauvage leased it in 1593 (which is considered the year it was founded), and it was then bought by his descendants in 1711.
