This historic château has changed hands and names, acquired vineyards, and evolved over the years. The estate has a close tie to the village of Margaux; one of its previous owners was, in fact, mayor of the town. Acquiring the title of mayor has its benefits in the wine world; even more accessible is sought after land; that’s just what was done. One such Camille Lenoir purchased a plot of land named “Curton,” one of the best plots of Margaux. The name of the château comes from a locality of the village. Today the estate is looked after by Claire Villars Lurton, who works diligently with her efforts of delicacy.
This bottle of Margaux is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petite Verdot coming from 30 year old vines clay and gravel-based soils. The wine sees oak for twelve months, 25% of which is new.
