The estate and viticulture here has a history going back to the medieval era and it was owned by the Villeneuve family for 300 years until the Dubos family bought it in 1892. In the1855 classification it was not on the original list of classed growths in April,but after intensive lobbying by owner Caroline Villeneuve-Durfort it was added in the September,the only alteration to the list until the 1973 promotion of Chateau Mouton Rothschild from 2nd growth to first.

The estate is now owned by the SMA insurance group who have invested heavily. There are 90 hectares under vine.There is a second wine called 'Les Alles de Cantemerle' Read less
