After passing into the Hosten, Laborde and Malescot families, the Hurbe had to be the home of an original personality. Leonie of the roque of mons was the daughter of the mayor of the commune, Alfred of the roque of mons, and of the Malescot. His family had distinguished itself by Jean-François de la Roque de mons (1732-1808), lieutenant-general of the king’s armies, who had been a deputy of the Périgord nobility in the General States of 1789. as for the Malescot family whose origin is lost in the nature of the oldest history of the bazadais, it was the last representative of the name Malescot Claude, bachelor and uncle of Leonie.
The Hurbe is therefore a winery operated by the 3rd generation.
From 1921 to 1935, the wine was produced at the castle, 1935 was the last year of production at the castle because the wine crisis ravaged small wineries. That’s why Marcel Bodet founded a cooperative winery. He continued to exploit the vines of the Hurbe until 1946, which his son-in-law Henri Bousseau took over until 1982.
On this date Marc Bousseau will succeed his father. in 1990, Marc Bousseau decided to return to the castle for vinifying his wine. Existing buildings will be renovated, stainless steel will replace wooden vats and modern techniques such as thermoregulation will be installed. after the harvest of the vintage 90, Marc and Agnès Bousseau will revive the sale to private individuals through the direct sale to the castle. At that time, half of the grapes are vinified at the cooperative and the rest at the property. during the 90s, 2000s, the vineyard will be restructured by regular grubbing and replanting.
Today, the share in the cellar represents 10% compared to 90% in particular winery.
The 3.5ha white vineyard is planted with sauvignon grape varieties for the production of our dry white and semeillon for the making of our cremant.
