The estate is located in Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). In 1989, Jean-Luc Thunevin and his wife Murielle Andraud bought a small parcel of 0.6 hectares between Château Pavie-Macquin and Château La Clotte. They were advised by the well-known star oenologist Michel Rolland. The first vintage produced was 1991, and the vineyards were subsequently greatly expanded; in 1998 by the purchase of the former Château Bel-Air Ouy in Saint-Etienne de Lisse. One of the most famous garage wines is produced on the estate. Thunevin is regarded as the inventor of these extreme specifications and thus perfectionist wines, as well as his winery as an absolute top address. A special feature is that in 2012 the classification from "Grand Cru" to "Premier Grand Cru Classé B" was achieved.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
