The castle was built during the 14th century and was owned by a succession of nobility.

The property comprises of 30 hectares of vines, situated on the left bank of the river Vienne. The grapes grow on varied soils in the Chinon appellation, and thrive depending on the type of vintage. The Cabernet Franc used to make the Chinon is sourced from 14 hectares of vines grown in the finest vineyards in the Chinon appellation.
