Château Bouscaut

In the PDO of Pessac-Léognan, Château Bouscaut is a Grand Cru Classé of the Graves in white and red wines.

About the winery
The château has an environmental classification (HVE) and produces white and red wines, among them Grands Crus Classés de Graves. Their vast cellar was renovated in 2010 and a new barrel cellar built, which is open to the public, with tours in English as well as French. There are several wine workshops on offer, including food pairing. But you can go even deeper at Château Bouscaut, with an opportunity to learn from a wine specialist how to identify the notes and flavours in the glass. Or be guided in the art that every winemaker must master - blending. The estate, just a 20-minute drive from Bordeaux, is a labour of love for Laurent and Sophie Cogombles, who travel extensively to meet buyers and promote their wine. Château Bouscaut also runs a gîte that sleeps 10 - Château Valoux - overlooking the vineyards. Given the glorious surroundings, it’s not difficult to imagine that many visitors would find a wine-tasting workshop just isn’t enough and book themselves in for a week.

History & Geography
At the end of the 19th century, the Chabanneau family acquired Château Bouscaut. Since 1881 the Castle has been renamed according to a place called Le Bouscaut to replace Châtau Haut-Truchon. The various owners throughout the twentieth century were very dedicated to improving and transforming both the vineyard and the château. The neighbouring property, Château Valoux, became part of Bouscaut in 1929. In 1979, Château Bouscaut was acquired by Lucien Lurton, a well-known Bordeaux winemaker, owner of already ten other prestigious wine estates. Since 1992 it is now Sophie Lurton, Lucien Lurton's daughter who is running the estate with her husband, Laurent Cogombles, an agranomist. The Château Valoux, 4 * gîte, has been welcoming since 2013 up to 10 people or 4 people (gîte specially equipped for people with reduced mobility) and 6 people in two adjoining gîtes: ( In 2018, Château BOUSCAUT becomes HVE 3: exploitation with High Environmental Value.
