Château Doisy-Dubroca

The winery is located in the municipality of Barsac in the area Sauterne (Graves, Bordeaux). The origin dates back to 1677, when Jean Raymond took over an agricultural estate called Doisic (later Doisy). First vineyards were probably created only by descendants. The Védrines family became owners in 1704 through marriage. In the first half of the 19th century, the estate was divided into three parts, the actual Château Doisy-Dubroca (which was taken over by the Faux family), Château Doisy-Daëne and Château Doisy-Védrines, Anyway, at the Bordeaux Classification 1855 (for Sauternes) all three goods classified in second place (Deuxième Cru Classé).

After various owners, including the eponymous family Dubroca, where also vineyards between the three goods went back and forth, the estate was 1971 by Lucien Lurton taken over and received the today's name. Since 1992, Louis Lurton runs the business. The vineyards cover 3.5 hectares of vineyards with only Sémillon. The long-lasting noble sweet wine is aged 24 to 30 months in 25% new oak barrels. The vinification takes place in the neighboring, also in the possession of Lurton Château Climens, The second wine is called "La Demoiselle de Doisy".
