Description

The Chateau Bouscaut was built in the 17th century and produced famous wines that were classified growth in 1956 for their Graves red and white. The chateau was destroyed by fire in 1962, then completely rebuilt and sold to American investors. In 1969, it was bought by Lucien Lurton, owner of Brane-Cantenac in the village of Margaux, and four other vineyards of the best wines in the Medoc appellation.

In 1992, Lucien gave the domain to his daughter Sophie who was married to oenologist Laurent Cogombles. In 2010 they built a new winery and created a guest house with wine tasting and food pairing for every wine of the domain.  They received the best of wine-tourism award for this.

This white wine has a bright gold color. It was kept on lees in oak barrels for about ten months which gives it more body and taste.
