At the beginning of the 19th century, the esteemed animal painter of Scottish descent, John Lewis Brown, bought the vineyard. Designed by Brown in a traditional Tudor style, the château was host to the grand parties for which the owner was renowned.

The chateau was sold in 1843 to a banker (Gromard), the owner in 1855, when the estate was granted a Grand Cru classification.

150 years later the Simon Halabi family has given new impetus to the estate with the ambition of raising it to the highest echelons.

The vineyard covers 42 hectares (104 acres) and has the gravelly soils, typical of the Médoc area. The attractive white stones reflect the sun’s rays onto the fruit in daytime whilst at night they radiate the heat retained during the day.

Grape varieties are 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc that produce subtle wines with an intense bouquet and are well-suited for bottle ageing. 30% Merlot makes up the remainder of the vines and contributes to colour, richness and roundness.

The vines have an average age of 35 years and are pruned using the double Guyot method. Vine density ranges from 8,500 to 10,000 stocks per hectare and yields 4,500 litres per hectare.
