The winery is located in Saint-Emilion
in the same area (Bordeaux). The name derives from its location on a hill (Tertre = hill). The neglected operation was acquired in 1978 by the Comte Léo de Malet-Roquefort and reactivated. Until 1984, therefore, had the wines on the Château La Gaffelière
be vinified. In 2011, the operation of the Domaine Clarence Dillon
acquired and renamed "Château Quintus". In 2012, it was classified under the old name as "Grand Cru Classé" or confirmed this; whether the new name is classified remains open (as of the end of 2014). The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards with the varieties Merlot (51%) and Cabernet Franc (49%). The red wine matures in 50% new oak barrels. The new second wine is now called "Le Dragon of Quintus" (formerly "Château de Roquefort").
