The estate is located in the commune of Bommes Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin is in 1660, when the Cazeau family came into the possession of the then Château Rabaud through the marriage of Arnaud de Cazeau with Marie Peyronne de Rabaud. After more than 150 years in the possession of this family, it was acquired in 1819 by Gabriel Deyme, who sold it to Henri Drouilhet de Sigalas in 1864. In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 the estate was still classified undivided under the name Château Rabaud as "Premier Cru Classé" (Sauternes). Henri subsequently also bought up the former Château Pexoto and integrated the areas of this property classified as Deuxième Cru Classé in Château Rabaud, which, however, retained its status as Premier Cru Classé. However, his son Pierre Drouilhet de Sigalas separated from part of the property in 1903 and sold it to Adrien Promis. The remaining part of the Sigalas family was given the name Château Sigalas-Rabaud,

The share sold was named Château Rabaud-Promis after its new owner. Henri's son Gérard inherited the Château Sigalas-Rabaud in 1929 and later bequeathed it to his daughter, who married the Marquis René de Lambert de Granges. The marquis hired Pierre Ginestet as managing director, who was already responsible for Château Rabaud celebrities. Until 1949, both wines were marketed separately, but expanded by the same team. The collaboration ended with a change of ownership at Château Rabaud celebrities in 1953 and brought about the final separation. The property in question is owned by GFA Rabaud-Promis; it is managed by Philippe Dejean. The vineyards cover 33 hectares and are planted with Sémillon (80%), Sauvignon Blanc (18%) and Muscadelle (2%). The extremely long-lasting noble sweet wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in 100% new barriques. Two second wines are "Domaine de l'Estremade" and "Château Bequet".
