Four centuries of history
The wine adventure of Larteau therefore began at the end of the 18th century. The management of the property is then ensured by Francois de Belcier, Knight, Lord of Crain, Baron of Ares, whose family probably owned these lands from the 17th century.
Significant work was carried out on the outbuildings of the property in the 1770s, the origin of the barrel cellar seems to date back to 1776, the date of the independence of the United States.
Under the impetus of a large family of merchants from Libourne, the Beylots, who acquired the property in 1778, the castle was to experience prosperous times, with a peak of notoriety in the 1900s. First wine acquisition of this dynasty of merchants, they will keep it for more than a century as the symbol of their empire.
The property is transmitted to the Lacaze family who will keep it until 1967, then other families will follow.
Jean-Pierre Angliviel de La Beaumelle bought the property. He comes from a family of Bordeaux merchants, the Mestresaz. He renovated a large part of the cellars and the château.
After the death of Jean-Pierre Angliviel de La Beaumelle, the property passed into the hands of a foreign group in 2017.
