The estate is located in the commune of Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse in the Saint-Émilion area (Bordeaux). Its origins date back to 1737, when documentary evidence shows that the owner at the time planted the red variety Auxerrois, which was then increasingly called Pressac from that time onwards. Auxerrois and Pressac or Noir de Pressac are synonyms for Cot (also Malbec). So the winery name is derived from Pressac. This was the dominant variety at the time. The estate was bought by Jean François Quenin in 1997 and completely renovated. In 2012, the estate was classified as "Grand Cru Classé" for the first time. The vineyards cover 42 hectares with Merlot (72%), Cabernet Franc (14%), Cabernet Sauvignon (12%), Carmenère (1%) and Cot (Malbec, Pressac). The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 months in two-thirds new barriques. The second wine is called "Tour de Pressac"; there is also a third wine.
