Château de Rochemorin

The winery is located in the municipality of Martillac in the Pessac-Léognan area of Graves (Bordeaux). The name derives from a fortification called "Roche-Morine", which stood here against the Moorish invasions in the 7th and 8th centuries. In 1973, the estate was acquired by André Lurton. Lurton subsequently cleared the forest on the highest hill in Martillac and planted vineyards on the gravel soil. The vineyards cover a total of 105 hectares, of which 87 hectares are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%), and 18 hectares with the white variety Sauvignon Blanc (100%). In 2010, an ultra-modern, fully automatic grape selection plant was installed. The long-lasting red wine matures for 12 months, the long-lasting white wine for 10 months in barriques that are about one third new.
