The estate is located in Saint-Emilion
in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). The name derives from its location on a hill (Tertre = hill). The neglected company was acquired and reactivated by the Comte Léo de Malet-Roquefort in 1978. Until 1984, therefore, the wines on the Château La Gaffelière
be vinified. In 2011 the operation of the Domaine Clarence Dillon
acquired and renamed "Château Quintus". In 2012 it was classified under the old name as "Grand Cru Classé" or this was confirmed; whether the new name will be classified remains open (status at the end of 2014). The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vines with the varieties Merlot (51%) and Cabernet Franc (49%). The red wine matures in 50% new barriques. The new second wine is now called "Le Dragon of Quintus" (formerly "Château de Roquefort").
