Owned by the Despujol family from 1840 on, it was bought in 1997 by the Delon family, cousins by marriage and owners of Chateau Leoville Las Cases and Chateau Potensac. By Pomerol standards, this is a massive property, with 63 acres under vine, planted to a 75/25 mix of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wines here are masculine and quite structured by nature and do not display the typical, lush, velvety qualities found in most Pomerol wines. Fugue de Nenin is the chateau's second wine. This 2012 has notes of chocolate, cocoa, and black raspberry jam with just a hint of oak, a light plummy wine made in a fairly open style.
