On completing her degree in winemaking and oenology in 1984, Marie-Laure Lurton was employed by her father, Lucien Lurton, at his wine estates in the Medoc. In 1986 she took on the wine production management with her brother, Henri. In 1992, when the family’s châteaux were being passed down to the next generation, the young oenologist inherited Château de Villegeorge and Château La Tour de Bessan. Supported by a strong, competent team at every stage of production, this Medoc Marathon runner creates elegant and balanced wines that express the character of their vintage.
The owner of both Château La Tour de Bessan in Margaux and Château de Villegeorge in Avensan.
