This family property exists since the end of the French revolution, that is to say since six generations. The Château is located in the city of Preignac, at 40 km from the south of Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Garonne.

The estate counts about 15,5 hectares and is composed of 90% of semillon, 8% of sauvignon and 2% of muscadelle.

The wines are very rich and well-known for their exquisite and fruity aromas.

The vinification is subject to meticulous care. The harvests are run by hand and follow successive selections. According to the vintages, up to six selections can be led on the same parcel in order to collect only the grapes that are subject to noble rot.
