The winery is located in the commune of Pomerol in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). In the Middle Ages, the estate was a farm belonging to the Knights of St John. It was bought in 1772 by the Feuilhade family, considered pioneers of local viticulture. Finally, in 1918, it became the property of the Bailliencourt family; today it is run by Nicolas and Christophe de Bailliencourt. In 1969, five hectares of vines were sold to Château Pétrus. The vineyards cover 26 hectares and are planted with Merlot (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). The long-lasting red wine is matured for 18 months in up to half new barriques. The second wine is called "l'Hospitalet de Gazin".
