Château Lacure is a 12 hectare property located in the village of Saint-Romain- La Virvée, just outside the Fronsac appellation on the right-bank of Bordeaux. The vineyard’s clay-sand-limestone soil is ideal for ripening Merlot, which is the principal variety in Château Lacure. The average age of the vines is 30 years. It is owned by Bernard Equi , whose great-grandparents founded the estate in the 1920s. The name Lacure comes from a chapel used as a resting place for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago.
Farming practices: sustainable, following the practices of “lutte raisonnée.” The vines are trained high to enhance ripening and prevent diseases, while grass is planted between the rows.
