Clos Marsalette was created in 2002 by Francis Boutemy. Francis Boutemy was already experienced in Bordeaux as he owned the neighboring estate of Chateau Haut Lagrange. Actually, it is fair to say that Francis Boutemy came from a wine family, as his grandfather, Jacques Guillemaud, was both a negociant and the owner of Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion, also located in Pessac Leognan.
Today, Clos Marsalette is also owned in part by Stephan von Neipperg and Didier Miqueu. Stephan von Neipperg is well-known for all his Bordeaux properties in St. Emilion. This includes Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte.
