Christine Lurton - de Caix : a new ambassador for «Les Vignobles André Lurton»

"On Wednesday 3 September, as harvest began in our Pessac-Léognan vineyards, our operations team expanded to officially welcome André Lurton's daughter, Christine Lurton - de Caix. Her nomination will contribute to the Lurton group's corporate plan, launched in 2012, aimed at developing our Grand Cru activities.

From now on, Christine will represent Château Couhins-Lurton and Château La Louvière in France and abroad, participating in promotional trips organised by the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, the Union des Crus Classés de Graves, and the Conseil des Vins de Graves, among other key projects.

Our staff will benefit from her support and the extensive experience acquired during her nine years as director of a Margaux grand cru.

In 2013, Michel Rolland became consulting oenologist for our red wines, forming an outstanding duo with Professor Denis Dubourdieu, who supervises white wine production on our estates.

Christine’s arrival will mean a warm welcome to visitors in addition to a series of elegant receptions at the family estates.

An activity that begins right away with a major event: the annual Accabailles dinner is scheduled to take place at Château Couhins-Lurton on Sunday 16 November 2014. As they do every year, the Crus Classés de Graves will celebrate the harvest and welcome leading representatives of French Gastronomy."
