The winery is located on the outskirts of the city Saint-Emilion
in the same area (Bordeaux). It is owned by the company Borie-Manoux
(See there the closely intertwined Borie and Castéja family history). The vineyards cover 4.5 hectares and are planted with the varieties Merlot (55%), Cabernet Franc (35%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). It was classified in 2006 as "Grand Cru Classé". However, this classification was lost in 2012 because the grapes were sort of the second wine of the Château Trotte Vieille
(also owned by Borie-Manoux).
