A modern wine with a rich history
Since his arrival in 1992, Denis Lurton has chosen to make a wine that is both modern. that can be enjoyed in its youth, and yet retains the elegance and capacity for ageing that are characteristic of Margaux’s wines.
He has prolonged the destiny of this property, named after an old French family that had links to wine production in the Médoc as far back as 1741. This was the date that Jean-Baptiste Desmirail, a lawyer in Bordeaux's parliament, gave his name to the property when he received it from his wife, Marguerite Rauzan du Ribail, as part of her dowry.
