The estate is located in the municipality of Cantenac Margaux
in the Médoc
(Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). Its origins go back to 1650, when it was owned by Etienne Monteil, the canon of Saint-Émilion. This family inherited François-Antoine Pouget in 1748, who gave it its current name. His daughter Claire married a Pierre-François de Chavaille and the Pouget de Chavaille family ran the estate for the following eighteen centuries. The estate has been owned by the Elie-Guillemet family since 1906, who also owned the Château Boyd-Cantenac
heard. Both wines were produced there until 1982 and Pouget was treated as a second label by Boyd-Cantenac. Pouget has been vinified in a separate plant since the 1983 vintage. In the Bordeaux Classification
in 1855 it was ranked fourth (Quatrième Cru Classé), with the name Château Pouget-Lassale mentioned in some sources. The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The extremely long-lived red wine matures in 18% new barriques for up to 18 months. The second wine is called "Antoine Pouget" (formerly "Château La Tour Hassac").
