A family property since its beginnings in 1820, Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux has belonged to the Cordonnier family for over 50 years. We are located on the best gravelly terroirs of the Grand Poujeaux plateau and produce fine and elegant wines, with a discreet woodiness respecting the fruit and freshness. Our customers appreciate the drinkability of our wines and their Medoc character, a sign of the great respect we have for our terroir.
The philosophy of the ChâteauIf the notion of respecting the terroir is nowadays often associated with environmental measures, we are attached to another important dimension which is the highlighting of its typicity: finesse, elegance. The perpetual search for quality pushes us to surpass ourselves and to get the best out of each vintage. Over the years, our team has acquired a know-how and a precise knowledge of our terroirs allowing the elaboration of great wines. Since 2016, we have continued to take environmental measures to ensure that the only footprint we leave is the impeccable quality of our wines. We are certified High Environmental Value Level 3 since the 2018 vintage and have been conducting an organic farming trial on 3.2 hectares since 2018.HistoryThe Dutruch family created the property at the beginning of the 19th century and launched this beautiful story now perpetuated by the Cordonnier family.The first traces of Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux as such can be found in the Féret guide of 1868. The high quality of the wines was rewarded with the classification of Cru Bourgeois Supérieur in 1932, then Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 1966 and 1978.François Cordonnier (Senior), former manager of the Château de Chenonceau in the Loire, bought the property in 1967 from the descendants of the Dutruch family and increased the vineyard from 11 to 28 hectares. Without children, he passed the property on to his nephew Jean Baptiste in 1994. In 2016, François Cordonnier (Junior) took over to continue the work started by their uncle in the perpetual search for quality.The Terroir Located in the extreme east of the Moulis appellation, our vines are planted to 80% on the plateau of Grand Poujeaux, known to be the best terroir of Moulis. Its reputation comes from its deep gravelly soils called "Terrasses de type 3" identical to the gravelly soils of Saint-Estèphe or the western part of Saint-Julien, but also from its proximity to the Gironde whose influences in terms of temperature and hygrometry allow for an optimal ripening of the grapes.The remaining 20% is composed of clayey-limestone and sandy soils.This diversity of terroirs brings to our wines a great complexity and richness.
Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux, a family property for several generations, is committed to getting the best out of its terroir in the making of its wines. Grand Poujeaux, a deep gravelly soil, is very famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon.
