A brief history

Acquired by André Lurton in 1967, Château Couhins-Lurton is the smallest of our six estates, but also the smallest of the Graves Crus Classés. This discreet jewel produces, each year, on 5.5 hectares, a white wine which is classified, and on 12 hectares, red wines just as remarkable.

Previously known as the “sleeping beauty”, the property is undergoing a major architectural and landscape renovation project starting in spring 2021.

Its clay-limestone terroir produces a mineral Sauvignon Blanc and fruity, smooth Merlot. The wines are fermented and aged in 500 liter barrels and horizontal amphoras. A meticulous craftsman’s work that gives a very elegant and aromatic result.

The characteristic of Château Couhins-Lurton white wines, Cru Classé de Graves, is to be made from Sauvignon only. Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown on a clay-gravel-limestone soil which gives it a lot of freshness and finesse. The wines produced are very aromatic with delicate notes of white fruit, citrus and white flowers. Thanks to this terroir, they have great ageing potential.

Our merlot grown on a clay-gravel terroir, combines power with elegance. The wines are concentrated and silky, with black fruit aromas and very fine tannins, while retaining the freshness that makes them so fine. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, which represents a small proportion of the vineyard, brings a remarkable tannic structure which complements the elegance brought by the Merlot.
