The story behind the estate is not necessarily romantic, but it does convey a certain truth of the Bordeaux region. The owner is a former businessman from Paris who made his fortune selling high quality hair products. Dreaming of producing his own Bordeaux, he bought the Château in 2004. His young and dynamic team revived the estate with the tremendous '05 vintage, truly putting the beautiful terroir of the Entre-deux-Mers to good use. The owner also has a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru – the Château La Grangère – and a Graves de Vayres – the Château Tillede.
