An epic story

The Château owes its name to the battle of Pont d’Arcole, which pitted Napoleon’s army against Austrian soldiers in northern Italy in 1796. Mr. Jean Barthe, a soldier in Napoleon’s Guard, participated in this historic victory. Thanks to a few pieces of gold offered by Napoleon to those married on the same day as him, Mr. Barthe acquired his first parcel of vines in Bordeaux. For more than two centuries,
the property has passed down from generation to generation.
