Château d'Escurac


Although referred to in books of the region since 1839, when attention was drawn to this ‘extra quality Médoc bourgeois supérieur’, it took us until 2001 to ‘discover’ it! Current owner Jean-Marc Landureau’s first vintage was 1990; he has since equipped the property with the finest possible winery and barrel store, and the ‘grand vin’ receives ageing in barriques for one year, of which 30%-40% are new, depending upon the vintage.

The 2002 is a fantastic, savoury Médoc for drinking now; while the 2005 is perhaps his most glorious year yet - one for the cellar. The second wine, Chapelle d’Escurac, comes from Jean-Marc's younger vines and is aged in 100% new oak, but using a novel rotation method where each of four vats receives three months oak-ageing, for blending at the end of the year. This wine’s name comes from the estate’s chapel, parts of which date from the 10th century.
