Since then, the same family has been managing it with the greatest passion and respect. It is a 107 hectares property situated on the border of the Pauillac appellation. Today, the domain is advised by Stéphane Derenoncourt, the famous winemaker, and is famous worldwide for its rich, opulent and complex wines.
