Jacques Lurton reunites his wine family

he association "Lurton: a Family of Fine Wines" was founded one year ago, so that the thirteen members of the Lurton family who are active in the world of wine could come together and speak with one voice. These thirteen are:
- descendants of Léonce Recapet (1858-1943),
- grandsons of Denise Recapet and François Lurton, who in 1947 exchanged shares in château Margaux for Clos Fourtet, in Saint-Émilion,
- sons and daughters of André Lurton, former mayor of Grézillac, in 1987 founder of the appellation Pessac Léognan,
- sons and daughters of Lucien Lurton , Simone Noël-Lurton and Dominique Lurton.
The thirteen reunited Lurtons currently own 1 300 hectares of vines and 27 properties in Bordeaux but also in the Languedoc, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Chile, for François Lurton and in Australia, for Jacques Lurton. (For more information, consult the organisation’s website:

On the occasion of a Symposium of the Masters of Wine, co-organised by Jacques Lurton and Fiona Morrison for the IMW, the Lurtons invited 18 MWs to Château Bonnet in Grézillac. They were all there: Christine Lurton-Bazin de Caix (Château Dauzac), André Lurton (Couhins-Lurton, La Louvière, Bonnet, Rochemorin, Barbe Blanche, Coucheroy, Guibon, Quantin), François Lurton (Vins François Lurton in Argentina, Chile, Spain, Portugal, France), Jacques Lurton (The Islander Estate in Australia and Domaine de la Martinette in Bordeaux), Denis Lurton (Château Desmirail), Henri Lurton (Château Brane-Cantenac), Marie-Laure Lurton-Roux (Châteaux Villegeorge, Duplessis, La Tour de Bessan), Sophie Lurton-Cogombles (Châteaux Bouscaut, Lamothe-Bouscaut and Valoux), Gonzague Lurton (Château Dufort-Vivens), Thierry Lurton (Château Camarsac), Bérénice Lurton (Château Climens), Pierre Lurton ( Château Marjosse and manager of Château Cheval Blanc and CEO of Château d'Yquem), Marc Lurton (Château Reynier).
