Description

Over the years, the personalities of the different owners of Château d’Escurac have shaped this fine estate that thrones on one of the highest hillocks of the Medoc. Owned by the Landureau family, Jean Michel developed the vineyard and his son Jean-Marc, took it to new heights in terms of winemaking. Sadly he passed away in 2017 and his daughter has now taken the reigns. They have 40Ha, 48% planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

Smells

wonderful aromas of Bordeaux from years gone by; smoky, cigarbox, casis with a strong herbal vein, indicative of Cabernet, simply superb

Tastes

and the palate conjures that same image, life before climate change, where Bordeaux was herbal but in a very positive manner. The palate is seemless, a long, linear structure with classic, chalky tannins that coat your cheeks balanced by savoury, complex fruit and a fine acid thread. Cigarbox flavours linger and make you reminisce of a bygone era. No rush to drink as this will cellar 10-15 years or more
