The estate is located east of Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). In the 19th century, it was owned by Duke Élie Decazes (1780-1860), Prime Minister of Louis XVIII. In 1999, the estate was acquired by the d'Aulan family, former owners of the Piper-Heidsieck champagne house, but they sold it ten years later to Marie-Bénédicte Lefevere-Leymarie. The oenologist Michel Rolland was hired as an advisor. The estate was reclassified (after declassification in 1996) as "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vines planted with Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 to 18 months in barriques. The second wine is called Château Lasalle.

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.
