Clément Fayat acquired the chateau in 1976 and renamed it Clément Pichon in 1985. The 70 hectare estate (175 acres) includes a listed pond, a bird preserve, and 25 hectares (62 acres) of beautiful grounds, as well as a vineyard. Several works of contemporary art are scattered around the grounds.
Viticulture and winemaking are done in conjunction with the famous consultant Michel Rolland. The Fayat family also owns Chateau Fayat in Pomerol and Chateau La Dominique, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé
