Château de Cruzeau

The winery is located in the commune of Saint-Médard-d'Eyrans in Pessac-Léognan in the French region of Graves(Bordeaux) and was founded in the 17th century by the lawyer Jacques de Cruzeau. The castle was built in 1912. After an eventful history with several changes of ownership, it was acquired by André Lurton in 1973. He had the buildings, which had been destroyed by storms shortly before, renovated and the vineyards completely replanted. The vineyards cover a total of 97 hectares of vineyards on south-facing gravel soils, of which 70 hectares are planted with the red wine varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (43%) and Cabernet Franc (2%), and 27 hectares with the white wine variety Sauvignon Blanc (100%). The long-lasting red wine matures for 12 months, the long-lasting white wine for 10 months in about one third new barrique barrels.
