If the chateaux gods descended and offered me my own property, this would definitely be on my top five short-list. The location is pretty much perfect; to the east of Saint Emilion, at the highest point of the village of St Etienne de Lisse, on a limestone plateau 80 metres above sea level and surrounded by steep terraced hillsides. The views are stunning in every direction, and it is not surprising to learn that it is a spot with great historical significance. On second thoughts, perhaps as an English woman I should not be so enamoured with the view, as this is the place that, on July 20, 1453, the English surrendered after the Battle of Castillon, thereby ending 300 years of easy, tax-free access to Bordeaux wines.More about the Winery
