The property was acquired in 1940 by Jean-Charles Cazes. In the early 1980s, Jean-Michel Cazes, his grandson, rehabilitated and modernized the old buildings of the eighteenth century. Today, it is Jean-Charles Cazes, namesake of his great-grandfather, who directs the property and perpetuates the family know-how.
