Virtual Wine Tasting
Bordeaux Tasting: Pierre Lurton Unveils Château Marjosse’s Secret Cuvées
Moderated by Susan Kostrzewa, Editor-in-Chief of Wine Enthusiast
Thursday, June 24, 2021
Online • In English
A member of one of Bordeaux’s legendary winemaking families, Pierre Lurton shares his extensive knowledge of the region and leads a tasting of a selection of cuvées from Château Marjosse’s Anthology Collection. Susan Kostrzewa, Editor-in-Chief of Wine Enthusiast, will moderate the masterclass.
Lurton has owned and cultivated Château Marjosse since 1991. The Anthology wines, started in 2017 with then newly hired winemaker Jean-Marc Domme, are micro-vinifications of small-batch cuvées made from grapes on the property’s most notable parcels. Each cuvée in the collection embodies its owner’s poetic spirit and is named for one of the birds that inhabits the property.
All attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a selection of best cheeses from Lactalis. A winner will be selected via a random drawing at the end of the event.

Pierre Lurton is the owner of Château Marjosse.
Hailing from a large family of winemakers from Bordeaux, Pierre Lurton was introduced to the family business at a young age, first under the guidance of his father Dominic, at Château Reynier, and later with his uncles André and Lucien, at Clos Fourtet in Saint-Émilion. In 1990, Lurton rented parcels of the Marjosse Estate and soon began producing his own wine by hand, with barely any help. The following year he was hired as manager of the prestigious Château Cheval Blanc and was promoted to managing director in 1998. In 2004, he was appointed President of Château d’Yquem. He continues to hold both positions. However, Lurton never relinquished interest in Marjosse, purchasing its vineyards bit-by-by until he become the sole owner of the estate and its magnificent House Chartreuse in 2014. Passionate to delve deeper into the subtleties of Bordeaux’s terroir, he has been making since 2017 small batch cuvées from the grapes in the most notable parcels of the property, each with its own characteristics and micro-climate.
