Château Troussas Médoc

About the Winery

It was in 1993 that Marie-Laure and Gilles Ferris arrived in Valeyrac, a village of 600 people situated between Soulac and Pauillac, on the banks of the Gironde estuary.

Their property, soon to be 13 hectares, has been built up over the years by buying up several plots, giving birth to a tailor-made vineyard with sandy-gravel and clay-limestone soils.

Gilles, tell me about your “cru bourgeois” property
Of our 13 ha of vines, 60% are Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet France and 1% Petit Verdot. Château Troussas was part of the 1932 classification coordinated by the Bordeaux brokers, which listed 444 Crus Bourgeois under the authority of both the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and the Gironde Chamber of Agriculture. This list was used for more than 70 years as the reference for the commercial use of this category. Today, a committee assesses the quality of the châteaux according to several criteria, before validating or not their presence in the circle of Crus Bourgeois. After several years of absence, Château Troussas regained its status of CRU BOURGEOIS with the 2014 vintage.
