In 1936, Jacques Chauveau, a Parisian doctor bought the property. At that time a small amount of wine was already made. Today the domaine consists of 10 hectares of vines (25 acres) situated upon the clayey-limestone hillsides just outside of the village of Cravant-les-Côteaux sheltered by the forest and facing southwards. Jacques's son, Daniel, further innovated the style of wines being produced.
The superb winery can be found in the heart of the vineyard. Daniel and his son Christophe, now the resident winemaker, have decorated the winery with all sorts of interesting wine-related items and an impressive collection of corkscrews.
