The winery is located on the plateau Calcaire east of the city Saint-Emilion in the same area. The name derives from a canon of the monastery St-Émilion called Balestard, as well as an old tower still standing in the vineyard (Tonelle = gazebo). It has been owned by the Capdemourlin family since the 15th century, who also own the estates Château Cap-de-Mourlin and Château Petit-Faurie-de-Soutard belong. The famous French poet and vagabond François Villon (1431-1463) called the wine "ce divin nectar" (this divine nectar), a poem by him is included on the bottle label. The farm is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover eleven hectares and are planted with the varieties Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) and Malbec (5%). The extremely long-lived, decades-storable red wine matures in 50% new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Les Tourelles de Balestard".
