Chateau Marjosse is the home estate for Pierre Lurton. Pierre Lurton is best known as the Managing Director of two first-growth Bordeaux estates. Chateau Cheval Blanc in St. Emilion and Chateau d’Yquen in Sauternes. But Pierre Lurton is also well known for producing some of the best red and white wine from the Entre Deux Mers appellation at his Chateau Marjosse estate.
Lurton took over the responsibility of managing the estate in 1990 and has since grown it from 30 acres to 163 acres. This is a Merlot-driven blend, ripe and succulent, with plum, blackberry, and licorice notes.
