The winery is located northwest of Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) in the area of the same name. The property also includes a large quarry. In 1987, the estate was taken over by the AXA insurance group, in 1996 by a Belgian group and finally bought by Griet & Hervé Laviale in 2005. It is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vineyards planted with Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lasting red wine matures in 100% new barriques. The second wine is called "Les Cèdres de Franc Mayne".
