He acquired Armandt Bastit-Saint-Martin in 1958 and named it Château Lamothe. Part of it he sold in 1961 to the family Despujols, which added her name. The remaining part was now called Château Lamothe-Bergey, which was then sold in 1981 to the Guignard family and now the name Château Lamothe Guignard got.
