According to an inscription, the cellars located in the quaint little port of Saillans, on the banks of the Isle river, were built in 1878. Barges stopped here to load casks of wine and to carry them to traders in Libourne and Bordeaux.
Through his wife, Henri Goujon inherited the estate named after a former Libourne notary, Mr Puiffe de Magondeau, in 1933. His son André succeeded him in 1964, and with his wife, turned to estate ageing and bottling.
In 1989, after studying winemaking and oenology, André’s son Olivier took over the family estate.
