This property emerged thanks to Saint-Estephe land consolidations that took place in the 1970s and is located in the commune known as Coutelin within the Saint-Estephe appellation. The vineyard was classed as a Crus Bourgeois in 2011 and continues to produce wines worthy of that standard. Saint-Estephe wines are solid in character when young which makes them ideal for laying down.
