Château de Pez, west of the commune of Saint-Estèphe, rivals Calon Ségur as the most ancient of all the Bordeaux vineyards. Its 39 adjoining hectares enjoy ideal exposures on the hilltops around the Château itself.
The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave the Château its vineyards and the property remained in the hands of descendants until the French Revolution. Subsequently sold as a property of the state, the domain belonged in turn to the Tarteiron, Balguerie, Lawton, du Vivier, Bernard, and Dousson families before being purchased in June 1995 by Champagne Louis Roederer.
The estate currently comprises 30 hectares of vineyards mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
