Owned by the Cruse family since 1852, and classified Cru Bourgeois since the early 1930s, Laujac was hit hard by Du phylloxera, two world wars and the terrible frosts of 1956.
When Bernard Cruse took over in 1957, the estate was on its knees, with only 8 hectares remaining. He undertook the revival of the vineyards, modernization of techniques and tools and renovation of the buildings. After an astonishing 55 vintages, his daughter Vanessa and his son-in-law, René-Philippe Duboscq took the reins in 2012, with thriving vineyards now spreading over 60 hectares.
This new generation have made further large investments in the vineyards and in the winery in order to raise quality levels further still.
These days, the estate is all about full bodied, elegant wines made in harmony with nature.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
