The domain is situated at an altitude of 400 m on a route going out from D90, South of Suzette.  
In the Middle Ages the place was a fortified stronghold belonging to lords. It was destroyed in the 18th century and from the ruins raised a provencal farm.
In 1956 the place was purchased by Etienne de Menthon, who planted vines in suitable fields. A cellar was established in 1981.
Today the responsibility is in hands of his two daughters Sabine and Isabelle.
 
Cuvée Monsier la Comte is named in memory of Sabine's and Isabelle's grandfather
"Notre grand-père, François de Menthon, était un homme politique important : compagnon de la Libération, Ministre de la justice du Général de Gaulle à la fin de la 4e République, premier Président du Conseil de lEurope. Ma sœur et moi, qui allions en vacances chez lui lorsque nous étions petites, étions toujours surprises dentendre les villageois appeler notre grand-père si discret Monsieur le Comte, cest un clin doeil sympathique à sident du Conseil"
Sabine de Menton was the mayor of Suzette 2008-2014. (123 inhab. in 2013)
