The vineyard is located in Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). The vineyards once belonged to Château Figeac (see the history there). After several changes of ownership, the estate was bought by the German industrialist Otto Rettenmaier in 1973. It has been run by his son Otto Maximilian since 1994. The estate is classified as a Grand Cru Classé. The vineyards cover 15 hectares and are planted with Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Franc (40%). The long-lasting red wine is matured for up to 18 months in up to 100% new barrique barrels. The second wine is called "L'Esquisse de La Tour Figeac".
