The 2006 La Gurgue is creamy, soft and sensual - a true Margaux - but lacks a little finesse. But do not be deterred: this is a decent Bordeaux - redolent of blackberry and stem with a soft cassis entry and finish. Some acerbity on the back palate, but tannins fading. Drinking well now, but will keep to 2016 and beyond. A good expression of the region. 88 points.


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 croupes of Margaux. Then, the Château returns 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:

The 2006 vintage has given harmonious wines. The nose has freshness with aromas of ripe red and black fruits (plum) and slightly minted notes. The fruit flavors persist on the palate. The tannins get supple. The wine has a good structure and length. It shows a nice balance between power and finesse.
