A Cru Bourgeois château, located in the heart of the Pauillac commune, and one that produces wines that can often rival its class growths but which sell at a fraction of their price. For many years it was part of the Rothschild-owned Château Duhart-Milon. In 1948 it was purchased by Marcel Borie and is now owned by his son-in-law, Emile Castéja, who also owns Château Batailley, Château Beau Site and Château Trotte Vieille
The 15-hectare vineyard is rich in garonne gravel and is located adjacent to that of Duhart-Milon and very close to the vineyards of Grand Puy-Lacoste. The wine, which is vinified at Château Batailley, is a blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and the wine is then matured in oak barrels (40% new) for 12 months.
