2013 primeurs : a beautiful vintage for white Pessac-Léognan wines

Primeurs blancs 3

The presentation of barrel samples of the new vintage for Pessac-Léognan wines took place in early April at Château Malartic-Lagravière. Vignobles André Lurton were obviously represented at this important event. Promotion is especially important this year  because of the difficult economic climate and the fact that the 2013 vintage was a challenging one in Bordeaux due to uncooperative weather.

Wine professionals from around the world nevertheless came to this major event:  merchants, journalists, brokers, and other specialists were there to evaluate a vintage that was sometimes criticised even before it was tasted...

Fortunately, feedback was largely positive for the Pessac-Léognan appellation, and 2013 has some very pleasurable wines in store for us!

Château La Louvière and Château Couhins-Lurton: quality starts out in the vineyard

The arrival of the internationally-renowned oenologist Michel Rolland as a consultant at our two leading Pessac-Léognan estates (Château La Louvière and Château Couhins-Lurton) is the logical outcome of a fresh look by our winemaking team at how best to achieve always the ultimate goal: producing top-notch wines for the greatest satisfaction of our customers. A new set of specifications was carefully defined in the context of an ambitious quality-oriented seven-year plan including a number of parameters: vineyards, cellars, human resources, technical methods, and environmental protection.

2013 serves as a reminder to wine professionals such as ourselves that great wine cannot be made without cooperation from Mother Nature. Indeed, our winemaking team had to expend a great deal of energy in the vineyard and cellars to cope with the capricious weather.
