Château Escurac (d')
AOC Médoc Red
The history of the Château d'Escurac goes back to the 11th century. This cru is the highest-lying in the Médoc and was vinified in the cooperative until 1990. It was then bought by Jean-Marc Landureau who undertook numerous investments, building a fermenting room and a barrel-ageing room. Marrying cutting-edge vinification and traditional barrel-fermenting techniques, Jean-Marc Landureau has succeeded in placing the château among the best Crus Bourgeois. His meticulous work and passion were rewarded in 1999 when he won the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc cup.
Jean-Marc Landureau has succeeded in drawing out the essence of this legendary Bordeaux vintage, offering us a powerful, garnet-red Médoc. The nose opens up to reveal a complex bouquet of red fruit and spice, and exudes elegantly toasty notes. Typical of this vintage is the velvety attack, which gives way gradually to highly concentrated, delicately fruity aromas. The supple, elegant tannins persist to the finish.
