The winery is located in the area of Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) on the border of the Pomerol region. A famous neighbour is the Château Cheval Blanc. It was founded at the beginning of the 18th century. In 1917 it became the property of the wine merchant Marcel Loubat, which is considered the actual year of its birth. In 1976, it was bought by Françoise de Wilde, who carried out major renovations in the cellar and the vineyards. He sold it in 2014 to Cyrille and Nicolas Gregoire. The estate is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 15 hectares and are planted with Merlot (65%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The long-lasting red wine is aged for 12 to 16 months in barriques that are one third new. The second wine is called "La Garenne de Ripeau".
