Château d’Escurac is a beautiful property in Civrac-Médoc covering 120 hectares of which 40 are under vine. Jean-Marc Landureau, owner from 1990 to 2017, created 4 wines: Château d’Escurac, Château Haut-Myles, La Chapelle d’Escurac and Pépin d’Escurac. Château d’Escurac and Château Haut-Myles are classified Cru Bourgeois appellation Médoc. Today, Anne Landureau, his daughter, is perpetuating her father’s work and the estate continues to be managed by the dedicated team that has been in place for many years.
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.
La Chapelle d’Escurac
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.
Classified Cru Bourgeois in 1932, the château Haut-Myles is attached to the d’Escurac property. The vineyard of 18 hectares, is planted on a clay-limestone soil on the higher land of Blaignan.
Château d’Escurac is composed of woods, meadows and vines. Out of forty hectare, the main twenty-four hectare vineyard is located on the gravelly high mound (17 metres) on which the château itself is perched, overlooking the surrounding marshes.READ MOREREAD MORE
