Le Figaro Vin

This estate is continuing its fine form with this rich wine. The wood aging is present while leaving plenty of room for the black-currant fruit from the 50% of Cabernet Franc in the blend. The wine is full of attractive fruitiness and a structure that will broaden out as it matures.

Description

The personalities of the different owners of Château d'Escurac have shaped this beautiful estate, located on one of the highest ridges of the Medoc. Its very pretty chapel of XI century testifies of a first seigniorial life, rural and ecclesiastical which marked the place forever. The Landureau family falls in love and acquires the property in 1934. Jean the grandfather, a great lover of horses turns the property into a stud farm and devotes himself to his passion. His son Jean-Michel, diversifies the activities of the estate, develops the culture of the vineyard and raises his grapes at the Cave Cooperative.


From the beginning, in our classification of wines of the Gironde, we had worn those of Mr. Pépin d'Escurac in the fifth cru of Médoc we will maintain them because we want to be included, if this too timid owner did not want to be reduced to the class of good bourgeois

Excerpt from the newspaper Le Producer - 1839



Château d'Escurac today

It is finally Jean-Marc Landureau, his little son (current owner) who from the first harvest of his childhood, decides to devote his life to extract the best of this beautiful terroir. In 1989, Jean-Marc Landureau moved to the property and put all his energy into the renovation of the vineyard. No more question of bringing his wine to the cooperative; 1990 signs his first vintage. Along with the fundamentals of his wine heritage, he is obsessed with openness and the necessary evolution.



This permanent quest for adaptation and accuracy was rewarded in 1999, when Château d'Escurac won the 15th Crus Bourgeois Cup in front of the most illustrious.

A feat he has since confirmed by offering, vintage after vintage, a powerful and solid wine that also reveals a lot of finesse, subtlety, all in harmony.

Médoc

The Médoc appellation combines three types of terroir: the Pyrenees gravel, the Garonne gravel, and the clay-limestone soils. Given the importance of the size of the appellation, these terroirs are characterized by an extreme variety of soils and subsoils.The Médoc enjoys an exceptional geographical location and a unique underground. Gravel rumps give birth to great wines. The blend of Merlot (the most important grape variety of the AOC), with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec give the wines charm and balance.The mouth of the Médoc is well structured, full on a frame of tasty tannins.
