The estate is located in the municipality of Castelnau-de-Médoc in the area Margaux
in the Médoc
(Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification
after the old now no longer valid system, it was last classified in 2003 as "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel". The origin of the estate dates back to the 14th century. In the case of a division after the French Revolution, those are in the neighborhood Château Labégorce
and L'Abbé de Gorsse de Gorsse, as well as the figurative emerged. The latter was bought in 1795 by Barthélémy Benoist. His daughter and heiress married a Jean-Emile Zédé, whose son Pierre then in 1840 gave the estate its present name.
It was bought by Luc Thienpont in 1979 after many changes of ownership and finally in 2005 he went to the industrialist Hubert Perrodo (+2006), who had already acquired the Château Labégorce in 1989. His tragic death in a ski accident prevented the realization of the plan to reunite the three wineries. The vineyards cover 27 hectares of vines with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (35%) Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 months in 50% new barriques. The second wine is called "Domaine Zédé". From a nine-hectare not counting to the appellation Margaux vineyard, the red wine "Z de Zédé" is produced, which is marketed under Bordeaux Supérieur.
