It is not always easy to live up to a family name, especially one as ubiquitous as the Lurtons in the wine world, but Gonzague is more than up to the challenge. The Lurton family has been a major player in the Bordeaux wine trade for over three generations with a handful of classified Châteaux and dozens of other fine properties to their name. Lucien Lurton, Gonzague’s father, spent his entire career acquiring properties throughout the Left Bank of Bordeaux, often saving these precious pieces of land and history from ruin. By 1992 Lucien had accumulated 12 different winemaking estates and decided it was time to pass them on to the next generation.
