The Château Hourtin-Ducasse vineyard, located next to Pauillac, produces a Haut-Médoc. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, two former owners, Mr. Hourtin and Mr. Ducasse, gave the wine its name. In 1976, Michel Marengo bought it and now manage it with his wife and their 7 children.
The vineyard stretches on 25ha cultivated using conservation agriculture techniques that take advantage of the biodynamie and the biological agriculture methods. « Beside our determination to preserve the richness of our terroir and to respect the environment, we believe that we will that way improve the quality of our wines”. While revealing the purity of the fruit, their wine is characterised by his elegance and balance. The last 32 vintages have received 132 awards.
