  • In 1952, Hervé Duboscq, whose family was from Gascony, had the foresight to take on 7 hectares of land in St. Estèphe in the north of the Médoc from the McCarthy family, one of the famous Irish 'Wild Geese' families who had settled in Bordeaux in the 17th century. Though close to Cos d'Estournel, the value of this unique terroir was far less recognised and after the war Hervé set about buying all of the other McCarthy plots, gradually building up an estate of 76 hectares. This passed to his son Henri, who established the wines' pedigree, and today the operation is run with verve and commitment by his sons Hugues and Bruno.
