The winery is located in Saint-Emilion in the same area (Bordeaux) next to the Château Cheval Blanc, It was founded in the late 18th century. Among other things, it was owned by Madame Loubat or her heirs, who formerly also the Château Pétrus belonged. The completely run-down estate was bought in 2004 by Olivier Decelle, who made major investments in alterations to the vineyard and cellar, and the well-known consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt (* 1963) engaged. Among other things, the floors were fixed by means of rocks and drainage channels were built. Instead of tractors horses are now used. The renovation was completed in 2008.

The management of the vineyards is carried out according to the rules of the Biodynamic viticulture, The company was classified (after temporary declassification 1985) in 2012 again as "Grand Cru Classé".
