Chateau Laujac

Laujac is an ancient place name which most certainly finds its origins in the conquest of Gaul. In the Gironde area, names ending in « ac » usually serve to identify a Gallo-Roman villa.

While digging the foundations for the vatting room during the nineteenth century, the workers found mosaic fragments, polished axes, flint work and pottery.

For time immemorial this land belonged to the Aujeard Family, but following the Revolution it was purchased by Mr. Villeminot, who was a supplier to the Napoleonic wars. He had the Chateau built in the neoclassical style in 1810.

The Chateau was purchased by the Cruse family in 1852.

Due to the “phylloxera invasion” at the beginning of the 20th century, 2 world wars and the terrible frosts of 1956, there were only 8 hectares of vines remaining when Bernard Cruse took over the management of the estate in 1957. He undertook the revival of the vineyards, modernization of the technical tools and renovation of the buildings. After 55 vintages, this passionate winemaker transmitted management of the Laujac estate to his daughter Vanessa and his son-in-law, René-Philippe Duboscq, in 2012. The vineyards now spread over 60 hectares.
