Located in Saint-Sauveur, on the surrounding of Pauillac, their former owners, in the 18th and 19th centuries, Messrs Hourtin and Ducasse, gave their name to this area. Our family acquired it in 1976 and for more than 40 years we have been taking care of it with a bunch of our 7 children.
French wines have been world famous for centuries. And yet, men,
knowledge and technologies have changed since then, but the wines have remained, as symbols of excellence. It is therefore nature and the terroirs that make our wines and we are only transmitters. Here, we protect the integrity and specificities of our terroir so that our wines reveal its magic and its personalities. We accompany our vines and then raise our wines so that each vintage expresses its particularities and its talent; we seek each year the purity of the fruit and the in-itself of each vintage. The last 35 vintages of château-hourtin-ducasse have received 149 awards.
Every year, we are looking for purity and in-itself of each vintage...
Our management of the vine is based on the use of the natural capacities of plants, in the form of infusions and macerations...
Our land covers 25 hectares, including 18 hectares of vines, on average over 25 years old. Our vine management is based on the use of the natural capacities of plants, in the form of infusions and macerations, to treat the vines, work the soil, promote diversity between the rows, allow the vines to grow stronger and thus express themselves fully. In addition to our determination to preserve the riches of our terroir and our desire to respect the environment, we are convinced of improving the quality of our wines in this way.
Our wines ... and more
Château Hourtin-Ducasse, Haut-Médoc, Les Roses de Marie, rosé
and noGGIN, spirit drink...
Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are the grape varieties planted on the Château Hourtin-Ducasse estate, Haut-Médoc, Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée. This wine is defined by its elegance and balance.
Les Roses de Marie is a blend of our grapes, pressed just after the harvest to obtain liveliness and precision. It’s a thirst-quenching wine, a lovely pleasure to drink straight away. noGGIN, our latest addition, is a spirit drink distilled from wines that we exclude from our blends of Château Hourtin-Ducasse or Roses de Marie. With its brilliant pale green highlights and garden aromas, onot the rockor in a cocktail, what freshness!
A former student of the École Centrale de Paris, I have taken over Château Hourtin-Ducasse with my family for over 40 years. Surrounded by a field team, I define the choices and orientations of the property
and, more particularly, the assembly
and monitoring the evolution of wines
Les Roses de Marie is its territory, as well as everything related to the presentation and dressing of the vineyard and our wines, in addition to the (very) heavy load of our 7 children. Lydie accompanies her to bring you maximum well-being when you come to see us.
