The winery is located in the Saint-Émilion area (Bordeaux). Its origins date back to 1540 with its first owner François de Lescours. After a chequered history and frequent changes of ownership, it was bought by Gérard Perse in 1993. The family now also owns the wine estates Château La Clusière, Château Pavie and Château Pavie-Decesse. Michel Rolland was hired as a consultant, who introduced extensive innovations. The estate is classified as a Grand Cru Classé, which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 32 hectares of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lasting red wine is aged for 18 months in new barriques. A Bordeaux Blanc is produced from an area planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sémillon and Muscadelle.
