What began as a project of three friends: the late Marcel Lapierre, Marie Lapierre and Jean-Claude Chanudet. The trio purchased this 13 hectare parcel upon realizing that, despite being designated outside the cru status, it held prestige beyond title. Planted originally in 1914 in 3 parcels, it is complimented by a mixed soil composition of clay/granite and calcareous-sand. They expanded the plantings and combined the wines to create a harmonious (and amazing) definition of the entire plot.

The ‘réserve’ bottling is from the oldest vines, called ‘Le Cambon.’ Following the organic practices they began so long ago, they tend their vines without chemicals or inorganic fertilizers. Marie Lapierre and Jean-Claude Chanudet have been conducting the work to new heights, establishing improvements and maintaining the "old school" practices in the vineyards and cellars of this centenary Chateau.
