Other Details

Marie-Christine, the daughter of Henri Ducourt, purchased this prestigious left-bank property in 1979, which lies on the border of the Graves appellation. The 60-hectare vineyard was rapidly replanted and the chateau building, which dates from 1348, was restored.

The wine is harvested in the cool early morning.
