My first wine memory
The tasting of a bottle which was three times my age

One word to describe my wine
Delicious

The history of the Château
Jean-Marc Landureau, present owner, went to live on the property in 1989 and put all this energy into renovating the vineyard. No more trips to the cooperative !! In 1990, he made his first vintage. At the same time as he improved the very basics of the vines he had inherited, he was obsessed with embracing new techniques to make the progress he sought. This continuous quest for adaptation and precision was recognised in 1996, when Château d'Escurac was awarded the 15th Crus Bourgeois Cup, ahead of some of the most illustrious growths in the category.
