Château Couhins

The estate is located in the village of Villenave-d'Ornon in the area Pessac-Léognan in Graves (Bordeaux). It was in 1968 by the INRA bought by the families Gasqueton and Hanappier to pursue wine-growing research. The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards, of which ten hectares with the Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and four hectares with Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. As the only winery in the area Graves only the white wine is classified as "Cru Classé". He is half blended from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. By the end of the 1970s, all the wine was André Lurton who had acted as lessee before the INRA purchase. Then INRA took the operation into its own hands. Lurton acquired in 1967 part of the vineyards and founded the Château Couhins-Lurton,
