The present day
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.
This new generation has made large investments in the vineyards and in the winery in order to raise quality levels and to enable continuation of the vineyard reconstruction while respecting the environment.
Their goal is to produce the best wines possible and to demonstrate the uniqueness of this terroir.
