Chateau Lajarre is a vineyard of 50 hectares , located southeast of Saint-Emilion. Since 2005, the Chateau is owned by Gregory Lovato, a young doctor and a winemaker. Located on a gravel and siliceous soil, Chateau Lajarre has the key elements for growing quality grapes.
Owned by the Duke of Lorge in the early nineteenth century, and sold during the Second Empire to Jean Gautier, minister of finance under the reign of Louis Philippe, and mayor of Bordeaux. It was he who built the castle which is currently still occupied by the owners.
After several landowners the domain was bought by the family Lovato in 1973, who also owns Château Canon-Montsegur.
