Winemaker

Philippe Ducourt

Since 1958, the Ducourt family has developed their winegrowing holding and constitutes one of the biggest wineries of Bordeaux with 12 châteaux and 440 acres of vineyards, including the Haurets Château. In the beginning, a modest agricultural farm, the small establishment expanded and subsequently became the family’s place of residence. Continuing the work begun by his elders, Jonathan Ducourt, in charge of the commercial activity, explained the history of the Château d’Haurets to us. Located in Ladaux at a few hundreds meters from the vinification cellars, the vineyard completely surrounds the Château and its mill. The property benefits from a fresh terroir with a dominant feature of clay-limestone soil.
