The very pretty 11th century chapel at Domaine d’Escurac harks back to religious life on a medieval lord’s estate, which has branded this place forever and given a name to the wine made here. This second wine of Château d’Escurac is resolutely modern and seeks to embody a refreshing balance between fruity and oaky aromas, offering a sensation of harmony and sheer enjoyment.
Pépin d’Escurac is a second wine of the Escurac estate. Pépin de Belleville was the name of a Squire, heir to the estate of Escurac. In 1740 after buying out his co-heirs’ shares, he became the owner of all of the fiefdom and lord of the Escurac parish. In 1934 the Landureau family fell in love with this charming property steeped in history.
Château d’Escurac is in the commune of Civrac-Médoc. One of its special features is its location on a high hill of gravelly soil over a clay subsoil rather than clay limestone as is the case for almost all of the rest of the commune. This remarkable soil explains the unique character of the estate’s wines.
