Michel Marengo


The history of the Château
The Château Hourtin-Ducasse vineyard is located in Saint-Sauveur, a village bordering Pauillac. The estate produces a Haut-Médoc, classified since 1932 as a Cru Bourgeois. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, two former owners, Mr. Hourtin and Mr. Ducasse, gave the wine its name. In 1976, the Marengo family bought the property and now manages the vineyard.
