Château Lapelletrie has been owned by the Jean family since 1930. The vineyard covers 12 hectares and is situated on one of the highest points of St Emilion at St Christophe des Bardes.

Manual harvesting takes place with grapes selected via a sorting table in the vineyard. The temperature-control systems in the vats allow for alcoholic fermentation to take place at 30°C - 32°C for 2-3 weeks. The wine is then transferred to oak barrels in January and matured for 12 -15 months.
