Chateau Larroque
France - Bordeaux

Marie Christine, the daughter of Henri Ducourt, purchased this prestigious left-bank property in 1979, which lies on the border of the Graves appellation. The 60-hectare vineyard was rapidly replanted and the château building, which dates from 1348, was restored. The family now produces three different-colored wines there: red, white and rosé.

The winemaking family history dates back to 1858. The arrival of the grandfather Henri Ducourt at the property marked an important turning point in the family business and the crocodile has since become the emblem of the family as a sign of tenacity, lucidity and cold-blooded business spirit.
