The first known reference to Lafite dates back to 1234 from the Gascon "la hite", ie the mound. Jacques de Segur is responsible for the planting of the Lafite vineyard around 1670. In 1695, the son and heir of Jacques de Segur, Alexander, will marry the heiress of Château Latour. Both seigneurial estates of Lafite and Latour were thus unified, initiating the beginning of common wine history.
