Our Vision

Emblematic property of the André Lurton family vineyards

 

Acquired by André Lurton in 1967, Château Couhins-Lurton is the smallest of our six estates, but also the smallest of the Graves Crus Classés. This discreet jewel produces, each year, on 5.5 hectares, a white wine which is classified, and on 12 hectares, red wines just as remarkable.

Previously known as the “sleeping beauty”, the property is undergoing a major architectural and landscape renovation project starting in spring 2021.

Its clay-limestone terroir produces a mineral Sauvignon Blanc and fruity, smooth Merlot. The wines are fermented and aged in 500 liter barrels and horizontal amphoras. A meticulous craftsman’s  work that gives a very elegant and aromatic result.

Our Vision

Family continuity

Since the 2018 vintage, Jacques Lurton has signed these wines and brought his technical expertise to them. These are gently crafted wines, conducted with a new vision, imbued with their unique terroir.

As part of a beautiful family and wine continuity, Château Couhins-Lurton can now count on the involvement and commitment of an entire family, in the many projects that are his.
