The winery is located in the municipality of Floressas, 100 kilometres north of Toulouse in the Département of Lot in southwest France. The oldest mention of a vineyard "Chambert" dates back to 1100. The estate has had an eventful history: in 1690 a Mademoiselle de La Valette, in 1810 a Lathese family and in 1870 a Bataille family took possession of the estate. In 1870, phylloxera devastated the majority of the vineyards. After the death of the owner, General Bataille (1862-1914) during the First World War, the 300 hectares of land were completely destroyed. It was not until 1973 that Marc Delgoulet made a fresh start by revitalising the best plots. In 1994 his son Joel took over the business. Finally, in November 2007, Philippe Lejeune took over the business

The headquarters of the family business is a castle, which was built in 1873 on the foundations of a small fortified castle from the 16th century. Two round towers of the castle were rebuilt in the old style in 1985. The total estate comprises 120 hectares of vineyards, fields and forest. The vineyards account for 65 hectares of this on a limestone plateau formed in the Jura, 300 metres thick. They are 85% Malbec(Cot) and the rest Merlot. All the vineyards are without exception within the Cahors appellation.

Since 2007, the vineyard has been cultivated according to the philosophy of the house based on ethical principles and respect for nature in accordance with the guidelines of Biodynamic viticulture. All the work is planned and carried out taking into account the phases of the moon. These include, among other things, avoiding the use of synthetic chemicals and herbicides, fertilizing with natural compost and biodynamic preparations (cow dung, horn powder) and thinning out to promote ventilation and solar radiation. This philosophy is underlined by a close collaboration with the famous oenologist and worldwide consultant of wineries Stéphane Derenoncourt (*1963)

The grapes are manually selected after the harvest in order to process only ripe and healthy grapes. In the cellar, the transport is carried out only by gravity. The processing is carried out separately for each plot, variety and quality. The fermentation takes place spontaneously without the addition of sugar or yeast in 45 steel tanks from 5 to 600 hectolitres with a total volume of one million litres (10,000 hectolitres). The wines mature for 12 to 18 months in 800 (225 litres) of French oak, a quarter of which is renewed each year. The temperature and humidity are controlled by computer. The Grand Vin comes from the estate's best plots of land, which were already being cultivated in the 10th century. It is produced from 100% Malbec in quantities of 50,000 to 80,000 bottles. The cellar holds 300,000 to 400,000 bottles, including older vintages.
