This historic property was acquired by the Ducourt family in 1994. It is situated to the west of Montagne, on the border between the Saint-Emilion and Lalande-de-Pomerol appellations. The terroir, with loamy-clay soils, and the gentle slopes allow for excellent natural drainage. Each vintage, we produce an elegant, harmonious wine with unique character.
