The winery is located in the municipality of Martillac in the Pessac-Léognan
area of Graves
(Bordeaux). The name derives from a fortification called "Roche-Morine", which stood here against the Moorish invasions in the 7th and 8th centuries. In 1973, the estate was acquired by André Lurton
. Lurton subsequently cleared the forest on the highest hill in Martillac and planted vineyards on the gravel soil. The vineyards cover a total of 105 hectares, of which 87 hectares are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%), and 18 hectares with the white variety Sauvignon Blanc (100%). In 2010, an ultra-modern, fully automatic grape selection plant was installed. The long-lasting red wine matures for 12 months, the long-lasting white wine for 10 months in barriques that are about one third new.
