The winery is located in the Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) area. Its origins date back to 1540 with a first owner François de Lescours. After an eventful history and frequent changes of ownership, it was bought by Gérard Perse in 1993. In the meantime, the family also owns the vineyards Château La Clusière, Château Pavie and Château Pavie-Decesse. Michel Rolland was hired as advisor, who introduced extensive innovations. The estate is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 32 hectares with 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 of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sémillon and Muscadelle.
