From the 17th century, the vineyard was part of the important area of Bages. Located in AOC Pauillac, it is ranked fifth Grand Cru in the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855.
Sold to the Croizet brothers, the estate was a time property of American industrialist Jean-Baptiste Monnot, who owned the brand “Klaxon” , then bought in 1942 by Paul Quié, wine broker at Bercy. Since 2004, the estate is run by Jean-Philippe Quié and his twin sister Anne-Françoise. As for their other castle, Rauzan-Gassies, they show the ambition to produce wines of excellence, ripe and fleshy.
