Château du Courlat is located in the right bank of Bordeaux, Lussac Saint-Émilion. There are old stables still that exist from the middle-ages and the estate is covered with ivy. The estate still shows the tower which was once owned by the Seigneurs Barons de Montagne. The first vines were planted during the middle-ages around the same time the Saint Emilion Jurade was created. Through successive generations, Pierre Bourotte rescued Le Courlat from sale by taking on the challenge started by his grandfather, Le Courlat 'Jean-Baptiste’. As a child, Pierre Bourotte was drawn to Château du Courlat and knew he wanted to continue his grandfather’s work. The property today counts 17 hectares of vines, and is run by Bourotte family, and has long since taken its place at the very top of the appellation Lussac Saint Emilion. The Bourotte family also own Clos du Clocher and Château Monregard La Croix in Pomerol, Château Les Hauts-Conseillants in Lalande de Pomerol and Chateau Beausejour amongst others. The slopes of Lussac are sought after for the quality of their clay soils, peppered with traces of limestone. The small plots are managed with care and precision, from pruning, to leaf canopy management and training the vines. The average age of the vines is 21 to 26 years. Grapes are hand harvested into small crates and then sorted.
