Achille NOËL was a wine merchant from the Lille region when, in 1936, he bought this ancient property that dates back to the 18th Century. Nicole NOËL, at the helm of the property until 2004, successfully managed to create a flagship of the appellation. After having made her mark in Saint-Emilion, Caroline NOËL-BARROUX took over in 2004. Having received no less than 7 “Coup de Coeur’s” from the Hachette Wine Guide, this family cru proudly participates in the renown of the appellation.
