    THE STORY: This Château is named after a 13th century tower in Soussans, the only remains of this medieval construction which was a veritable fortress built to protect its owner, Lord Jehan Colomb, when he was visiting his land. The edifice remained in the Colomb family until 1390, when his descendant was executed having been found guilty of conspiring against the English. Several illustrious local families followed suite in ownership: The Durforts, the Garros and the Lord of Mons in 1488. Their last heir, Thérèse, married the son of the renowned writer, Montesquieu in 1740 and their heirs kept this title until the French Revolution. It was in 1972 that Lucien Lurton bought the tower with its vineyards from the Clauzel family. He moved heaven and earth in order to establish this domain, all the while running his numerous other châteaux. In 1992, his daughter, Marie-Laure took over the domain.
