Located in Saint-Emilion, Château Laniote has belonged to the same family for nearly two centuries.
Seeing as it was passed from mother to daughter each time, the name of the owner changed regularly. Since 1988, Château Laniote has belonged to Florence and Arnaud de la Filolie. In fact, they also own the 13th century Chapelle de la Trinité in the heart of the village of Saint-Emilion as well as the Hermitage and part of the catacombs.
The vines are situated on Saint-Emilion's upper clay-limestone plateau. Grape varieties consist of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (20%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
Château Laniote was included as a Grand Cru Classé in the latest (2006) classification of the wines of Saint-Emilion.
