The Integrated farm management helps to limit chemical treatments.
The wine making is made in stainless steel vats, thermo regulated with long “cuvaisons”.
The aging in French oak barrels (no new oak), for approximately 18 months.
The totality of the harvest is bottled at Chateau Laujac, after selection and blending.
|Located in the heart of the Medoc area, the large estate of Laujac, spreads over 875 acres. It includes 2 vineyards listed as “Crus Bourgeois Superieurs”: Laujac on the beautiful hilltop made of filtering gravels, producing an excellent natural drainage, and Laffitte in the silty clay loam near the village of Begadan.
The proximity of the Gironde estuary and of the Atlantic ocean, creates very favorable microclimate for the vineyard and the maturing of the grapes.
Laujac is owned by the Cruse family since 1852. Following the footprints of family tradition, Bernard Cruse, continues to emphasize quality and creativity. His vision is to weave together the wines of tradition with those of contemporary innovation.
