9th October, 2013 by Rupert Millar

Vignobles André Lurton has announced it has secured renowned winemaking consultant, Michel Rolland to work on improving the domaine’s wines.

8 Michel RollandRolland, who had some input with the 2012 vintage, has now been brought on as a much closer collaborator for 2013 and future harvests.

The company explained that the hiring of Rolland, “coincides with the implementation of a policy that is now two years old: to improve the André Lurton wines still further”.

He will be working alongside another well-known name in the consulting world, Denis Dubourdieu, who works on the estate’s white wines.

Rolland will focus on the red wines from Château Couhins-Lurton and La Louvière in Pessac-Léognan in particular, but will also be closely involved with the winemaking at châteaux de Rochemorin, de Cruzeau (also both in Pessac) and Bonnet in Entre-deux-Mers.

Vignobles André Lurton operates nearly 10 estates around Bordeaux in a variety of communes. It has around 600 hectares of vines in total, 430 of them that produce red wines.
