The estate began in the 11th century. During the 14th century, It was owned by J. de Chaissaigne, when the name for the estate was established. Nothing noteworthy happened for next few hundred years until the French Revolution. The estate was auctioned off in pieces. A wine trader from Masson Dubois meticulously reconstructed the estate, acquiring all land bit by bit. In 1919, Charles Mimeur purchased the estate and it has been in his family ever since. The family has a couple of wine shops in Paris, where most of their wines are sold. They supplement the domaine vineyard holdings with purchased grapes from a few highly acclaimed vineyards.

|A subtle scent of Mirabelle has a hint of chalk and creaminess on the nose of this wine. The concentrated palate comes with freshness that counters the warmth and insistence of that concentration. This is rounded and powerful, yet precise. Drink by 2030.|
