Pierre Lurton's confidences

Through my functions in the Grands Crus Classés, I rub shoulders with the stars. Marjosse, my secret garden, allows me to keep my feet on the ground. Twenty-five years ago, I was lucky enough to be able to...

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


Each year, technical and cultural improvements are made in order to offer a superior quality for each vintage. In 2015, we further reduced the harvest volume (through green harvesting and stricter berry selection) in order to improve accuracy and quality. Pierre Lurton follows in the footsteps of one of the most famous and respected families in Bordeaux. Grandson and son of a winegrower, he has at heart to develop the terroir from which he comes and which he still lives today, that of the Entre-deux-Mers.

To demonstrate even more that nothing is impossible in wine, Pierre Lurton, in addition to betting on Entre Deux Mer, decided to plant a large majority of red and not white grape varieties like most of the vineyards in this region.

One of his wishes was to re-establish Malbec in the Bordeaux landscape, which was clearly dominated by Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

In the meantime, Château Marjosse is attracting new enthusiasts every day by producing wines that have nothing to envy the best for a very affordable price. A quality/price ratio at all times!

Other little stories



Being a winegrower means respecting your terroir and guaranteeing constant quality to your consumers. The main advantage of Marjosse is that it has an exceptional terroir. A rather rare thing in the Entre-Deux-Mers, the limestone at Astéries, the same one that made the reputation of the wines of Saint Emilion, arrives here at the surface. Marjosse has taken a new start. High-density replanting has made it possible to better exploit the excellence of its terroir. In 2015, we further reduced the harvest volume (through green harvesting and stricter berry selection) in order to improve accuracy and quality.
