The winery is located in the northwest of the commune of Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) in the area of the same name. It is said that the estate is home to the cave or hermitage where Saint Émilion (Aemilianus) lived in the 7th century, giving the town and area its name. The estate was founded in 1816 by the wine merchant Pierre Lacoste. Since 1988, the seventh generation of the family has been managed by Arnaud de la Filolie. The estate is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 5 hectares with Merlot (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The long-lasting red wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in 50% new barriques. The second wine is called "Chapelle de Laniote".

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
