About the winery

Although at the outset the company was one man's brainchild, it is in fact a collective endeavour. Vignobles André Lurton is run by a young, dynamic team of highly-skilled managers. Each and every one is attentive, rational, discreet and modest (a sterling quality in an ego-driven environment!). Understandably, André Lurton favours them with his total confidence.

WINE SPECTATOR - 03-01-2008 - Note : 91
Aromas of lemon, lime and slate. Full-bodied and very lively, with bright acidity and a lemony, minerally aftertaste. Drink now. #exception #cruclasse #complexe #aged

***** Excellent 
Producer tasting note
Robe : Bright gold
Noze : The fresh citrus (lemon and grapefruit) notes show the delicateness and finesse of Couhins-Lurton white 2006. After agitation, the perfectly integrated smoky and oaky notes become apparent but never over-shadow the fruit aromas.
On the palate, there is an impressive density and softness. It is clear that the 2006 is a magnificent vintage. A broad range of aromas (passion fruit, grapefruit, etc) unveil on the palate and provide a long finish. This wine, still very young, will be in perfect harmony after benefiting from aging a couple of years in the bottle.

LA REVUE DU VIN DE FRANCE - 02-01-2007 - Note : 16/20
Best French Wines 2007: The 2003 shows considerable finesse, is just a touch thin, a hallmark of this vintage.
