Château la Gurgue Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2003
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.
