(33) Gironde

The Marjosse adventure began in 1991 when Pierre Lurton, attracted by the fabulous terroir of the Entre-deux-Mers, bought the estate. Inspired by his management functions within the Grands Crus Classés (Yquem and Cheval Blanc), he undertook a huge restructuring of the vineyard and the construction (in 2000) of a new cellar, ultra modern and perfectly integrated into the landscape.

Our story

Every year, technical and cultural improvements are made in order to offer a superior quality in each vintage. In 2015, we have further reduced the volume of the harvest (through green harvesting and a stricter selection of berries) in order to gain in precision and quality. Pierre Lurton belongs to one of the best known and respected families in Bordeaux. As the grandson and son of a winegrower, he has at heart to enhance the value of a terroir from which he comes and which he still lives in today, that of the Entre-deux-Mers. To show a little more that nothing is impossible in wine, Pierre Lurton, in addition to betting on the Entre Deux Mer, decided to plant a large majority of red grape varieties and not white like the majority of the vineyards in this region. In the meantime, Château Marjosse is making new adepts every day by producing wines that have nothing to envy to the greatest for a very affordable price. An unbeatable value for money!

Other little stories

Being a winegrower means respecting your terroir and guaranteeing constant quality to your consumers. The main asset of marjosse is to possess an exceptional terroir. Something quite rare in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, the limestone at Astéries, the same limestone that has made the fame of the wines of Saint Emilion, arrives here on the outcrop. Marjosse has taken off again. The high density replanting has enabled the excellence of its terroir to be better exploited.
