In 1895 Antonin Ressès inherited the estate & spent his life rebuilding & enlarging the Domaine. In 1973, immediately after Cahors was awarded A.O.C. status (1971), Marcel Ressès & his son Léonce took charge of the estate. The Château soon won recognition as one of the standard setters of the appellation, being awarded numerous medals & favorable mentions in the Hachette guide & Revue des Vins de France.
Today, Léonce & his sons, Dominique & Richard, run a domain of 35 hectares. The family traditions, exceptional situation of the vineyards, constant care for the land & the strictest of winemaking techniques, combine to create one of the finest jewels in the Cahors crown.
The 35 hectare estate is sheltered behind the hills, which protects the vines from the cold, making it a perfect terrain for growing the Malbec, Merlot and Tannin grape.
