"At the beginning,
in our classification
of Gironde wines,
we put those of Mr. Pépin d’Escurac
amongst the Medoc fifth growths.
We will keep them there,
because in our view
they deserve it,
even if this far too modest owner
wants to relegate himself
to the class of
good bourgeois growths"
Over the years, the personalities of the different owners of Château d’Escurac have shaped this fine estate that perches on one of the highest hills of the Medoc
Its very pretty 11th century chapel is a reminder of a previous rural, feudal and ecclesiastical life that has left its indelible imprint here. The Landureau family fell in love
with the property and bought it in 1934.
Jean, the grandfather,
who loved horses, transformed
the property into a stud and indulged his passion.
His son, Jean-Michel,
diversified the estate’s activities, developed
vines and carried his grapes to the cooperative.
Finally Jean-Marc Landureau,
the grandson and present owner, decided after his first
harvests as a child to devote his life to getting
the best out of this fine estate.
