In 1997, the winery was acquired by Pierre Lourton, manager of the Château Cheval Blanc winery and a representative of the Bordeaux winemaking family with the same surname. In just 3 years under his leadership, the wine "Marjosse" has received well-deserved recognition. Winery "Marjosse" is located near the village of Tizac de Curton, in the heart of the Entre do Mer region. The vineyards here stretch over nine hectares and grow in limestone soil with clay at an altitude of about 300 meters above sea level. Here grapes are grown of the varieties Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Malbec (10%). Pierre Lourton produces wine in simply equipped but very efficient 200-year-old wine cellars. Despite its young age, the future of Château Marjosse looks promising.

Bordeaux wines are considered to be the most prestige and renowned in the world. The region is mainly known for its dry red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, and one can almost always find the word Château (French for „castle”) on Bordeaux wine labels. In order to understand the style of wine most desirable for your taste, it is recommended to try different samples from the Left as well as the Right Bank of The Gironde. Both banks differ not only with different soil, but also with the share of specific wines. There are several classifications in Bordeaux but the main one, introduced in 1855, hasn’t changed since and still impacts wine prices nowadays. A few years later, in 1936, an alternative classification system - Crus Bourgeois - was established. Bordeaux is known for a commerce praxis called en primeur - it means that a buyer can purchase wines immediately after harvest and prior to production for a substantially lower price, thus obtaining the opportunity to sell them for a larger profit later in the future. Bordeaux wines can be described as big, complex and with a strong character, but very friendly at the same time so that each and every wine lover could find something tasty and suitable for a great wine night.
