Château Lussan

The Château’s history goes back to the Middle Ages, but vines and wine have always been part of the estate. The winegrowing property first belonged to the monks of one of the region’s most important abbeys, before passing into the hands of the d’Esparbès de Lussan family, some of whom were governors of the town of Blaye. With this rich history in mind I work with the highest respect for Blaye traditions and pay great attention to the quality of our wines, which since 1876 have often won awards at Bordeaux and Paris shows.

The name of Lussan is the legacy of a former owner of the estate, François d'Esparbès de Lussan.
