André Lurton – Red

 

Les Vignobles André Lurton, currently one of the largest wineries in the Bordeaux region, is a family company. André Lurton, the company’s founder, is first and foremost a wine maker. For almost 70 years, he has dedicated his life to the vineyard. Today, he continues to spend his time loving and protecting the vines, as only a man born here can do. Les Vignobles André Lurton has 640 hectares of vines, planted in the best soils over 6 prestigious Bordeaux appellations in Bordeaux. The company’s head-office is at Château Bonnet in Grézillac where André Lurton was born. The red and white vineyard covers almost 300 hectares in several appellations: Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux Red and Rosé. However, Les Vignobles André Lurton also includes 260 hectares of vines in Pessac-Léognan. This appellation was created by André Lurton and selectively groups the best ‘terroirs’ of the Graves region – the historical birth place of the Grands Vins de Bordeaux. Les Vignobles André Lurton is also a partner in the management of other well known wineries, such as Château Dauzac (owned by MAIF) Grand Cru Classé 1855, in Margaux AOC and Château Barbe Blanche (Lussac-Saint-Emilion AOC) co-owned with André Magnon.
