Quite simply, because it was the name of the hamlet next door to the chateau where the first plot of the vineyard was planted.

"We can attest that it is one of the longest-standing in the area and its products contributed substantially in the past to building the reputation in France and abroad of Médoc wines. When sent to England at the end of the 17th century, they commanded a price of 400 French livres for a 900-litre barrel and more."

THE FAMILY COMMITMENT

Annick and Jean-Pierre Marie, as well as their son Nicolas, have taken over from Mr. de Cambon, who founded the estate. Since 1996, they have transformed the place, by changing a lot of the equipment, but also the whole approach to winemaking. Today they have contributed love, creativity and clear-sightedness to the venture.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH

In 2001, the property installed an effluent processing plant and since 2009, 6 hectares (15 acres) of the vineyard have been managed organically. This pioneering commitment is in perfect keeping with the values of the estate.
