User Reviews for Château la Gurgue Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux

Winemaker's Notes:

The history of Château La Gurgue is closely linked to the village of Margaux. Successively, two owners of the vineyard raced for the Town Hall of Margaux and won. The first was a wealthy Portuguese banker, Mr. Peixotto. In 1871, he added to the vineyard some beautiful lands, which were located around the Parish of Margaux. Later, another mayor of Margaux, Mr Camille Lenoir became the owner of Château La Gurgue. He gave his name to the Château and enriched it with some valuable plots surrounded by the vineyard of Château Margaux. They are located at Curton, on the best croups of Margaux. The Château then returned to its original name "La Gurgue", which is a locality of the village. Claire VILLARS LURTON is the architect of this revival. Year after year, she works with the upmost delicacy to express in her wine the unique terroir of Château La Gurgue.

Tasting Notes:

Initially the vintage gave a balance wine with a nice structure. The tannins were ripe, fine and tasty. Today, the wine has an elegant style and is ready to drink. The tannins are silky and supple after being decanted a couple of hours. Nice lingering aromas.
