In ‘the thorny shrub’ that the etymology of gorsse proffers for the splendid vineyards of
Labégorce today, generations of lords and farmers have succeeded in shaping the
identity of the estate. Hubert Perrodo’s great vision in 1989 centred on the tradition of
those who had loved this land over the centuries. Therefore, more than two hundred
years after the division of the property in three parts (Labégorce Margaux, Labégorce
Zédé and Labbé Gorsse de Gorsse), he has overcome the crazy challenge of putting
them back together. The Nouveau Grand Labégorce (since the 2009 vintage) offers a
lively fruit flavoured palette, extensive, rich, complex, smooth, lined with delicate
tannins and great finesse.
The Labégorce 2015 is among the great vintages possibly the best ever produced:
intense in color, aromas of black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry), spicy accents, with
elegant and silky tannins. A Margaux with lace and built for aging.
Blend: 60% Merlot – 38% Cabernet Sauvignon – 2% Petit Verdot
