Created by the Beylot family of Libourne négociants in the mid 19th century, this well-respected château is one of six estates now owned by the von Neipperg family. For some years the family owned shares in the property, but it was bought outright by Stephen von Neipperg in 1991. The vineyard lies on the fine sloping terroir to the north-east of Saint-Emilion.
