Situated to the south of Bordeaux in the western part of the Pessac-Leognan appellation, the 36-hectare domain has the rare advantage of being in one block. Today there are 23 hectares of red vines and 3 hectares of white in production.
The vines are planted on an exceptional soil of gravel deposited in the tertiary period mixed with pebbles deposited over thousands of years by the Garonne river. The proximity of the Garonne and the ocean guarantees the temperate climate whose mildness and hygrometry are so favourable to the vines.

From spring 2010 on…
… the vineyard has gained almost 10 hectares of new plantations to bring the total under culture to 26 hectares. 23 hectares of red vines are divided between 52% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% of Merlot. The 3 hectares of white vines are 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 18% Semillon, and 14% Sauvignon Gris.
