The winery is located in the municipality of Moulis (Moulis-en-Médoc) in the area of the same name in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux classification according to the old system, which is no longer valid, it was last classified as "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" in 2003. The vineyards had been known as "Salles de Poujeaux" since the 16th century and were in the same ownership as Château Latour. Until the beginning of the 19th century, the Gressier family owned this part of the vineyards called "Grand-Poujeaux". The extensive property was acquired by the merchant André Castaing in 1806. In 1820, the estate was divided into Château Chasse-Spleen, Château Gressier Grand-Poujeaux, Château Maucaillou and Château Poujeaux. In 1880, the estate in question was divided into three parts.

François Theil acquired one third in 1921. His son Jean, who was in charge of the estate from 1957, succeeded in buying the other two thirds and uniting the vineyards. In 1981, he handed over the management to his sons François, Jean-Pierre and Philippe. At the beginning of 2008, the estate became the property of Philippe Cuvelier, who also owns Clos Fourtet, for 25 million euros. It is managed by son Mathieu Cuvelier. The total estate covers around 100 hectares; 53 hectares of which are planted in a contiguous parcel with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 months in 50% new barriques. The second wine is called "Château La Salle-de-Poujeaux"
