The winery is located in the commune of Saint-Estèphe in the area of the same name in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). The name means "rose-coloured mountain" and is derived from the colour of the ferrous soil. Its origin dates back to 1778, when the Ségur family sold land to Etienne Théodore Dumoulin. His son Etienne Dumoulin started building the château in 1815 and planted vineyards at the same time. The Dumoulin family remained owners until 1866, when, after several changes of ownership, the estate was bought by Louis Charmolüe in 1896 and then managed by Jean-Louis Charmolüe. In 2006, it was acquired by the Bouygues brothers (telecommunications, civil engineering). In the 1855 Bordeaux classification, the estate was awarded second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).

The vineyards cover 69 hectares of vines and consist of clayey subsoil under reddish, highly ferruginous gravel soil. They are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%). A special feature is the large square-shaped vineyards, separated by wide avenues. The extremely long-lasting red wine, which is dark coloured due to the soil conditions, is aged for 18 months in up to 70% new barriques. It is counted among the so-called "super-seconds", i.e. it would deserve the "Premier Cru Classé". Because of the very similar massive style, the red wine is also called "Château Latour von Saint-Estèphe". The 1970 vintage was present at the legendary Paris Wine Tasting in 1976. The second wine is called "La Dame de Montrose".
