Château de Cruzeau, located in the southern part of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, in the Graves region, has a very old winegrowing terroir.
Jacques de Cruzeau, a lawyer at the Bordeaux Parliament, bought a house there and a few acres of vines in 1661. Little by little, he expanded the estate and transformed it into a sizeable one with vines planted on the best gravelly plots.
The vineyard is precisely indicated on Belleyme’s famous map dated 1770. In 1841, the magazine “Le Producteur” designated Château de Cruzeau the best wine of the commune, in both the red and white categories. The wine was also much admired by Bordeaux brokers. The château was built in 1912.
André Lurton acquired the estate in 1973 and immediately set about renovating it. He planted vines on beautiful south-facing gravelly rises. These now produce very elegant wines. The red wines are aged for a year in stave-wood oak barrels and the white wines (100% Sauvignon Blanc) are fermented and aged in barrel.
