The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

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

The vineyards are managed according to the rules of Biodynamic viticulture. The farm was (after an interim declassification in 1985) again classified as "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards cover 18 hectares of vines, planted with Cabernet Franc (54%), Merlot (40%) and Cot (6%). The high proportion of Cabernet Franc is unusual compared to other farms in the area. The long-lasting red wine is aged for 18 months in barriques that are 60% new.
