Lucien Lurton & Fils

The Lurton family is by far one of the most emblematic families in Bordeaux, having revived several of the region’s Grands Crus Classés. In the 1950s, 3rd generation winemaker Lucien Lurton acquired a number of Bordeaux flagship properties including many classified growths. A great connoisseur and champion of the best terroirs, he made his name by defending many parcels of land, which were coveted by gravel merchants when the vineyards were in major crisis. In 1992, he handed down his properties to his ten children. Today, Denis has Desmirail (3ème Cru Classé Margaux); Henri has Brane-Cantenac (2ème Cru Classé Margaux); Marie-Laure has Villegeorge (Haut-Médoc); Sophie runs Bouscaut (Cru Classé Graves) and Lamothe-Bouscaut (Pessac-Léognan) which was purchased in 1999; Gonzague looks after Château Durfort-Vivens (2ème Cru Classé Margaux), and also manages Château Haut-Bages Libéral (5ème Cru Classé Pauillac) with his wife, Claire Villars; Thierry is owner of Camarsac (Entre-deux Mers), and Bérénice is at the helm of the sumptuous Château Climens (1er Cru Classé Barsac).
