Château la Gurgue Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromen von roten Früchten und Röstnoten. Im Gaumen sind die Tannine weich und geben eine schöne Balance. Viel Finesse und Komplexität mit einem langanhaltenden Finale.

Château La Gurgue:
The history of Chateau Gurgue and the village of Margaux have often crossed paths. One after the other, two owners of the vineyards were elected mayor of this famous village! The first was Mr Lanoire, who gave his name to the chateau for a time, and enriched it with precious plots of land situated in Curton.

The history of Chateau Gurgue and the village of Margaux have often crossed paths. One after the other, two owners of the vineyards were elected mayor of this famous village! The first was Mr Lanoire, who gave his name to the chateau for a time, and enriched it with precious plots of land situated in Curton. Then the Chateau once again returned to its original name, that of a hamlet belonging to the village. The chateau was sold to him by the rich Portuguese banker, Peixotto, whose fortune was contemporary to that of Perreires and Rothschild. Alas, his success did not last as long as that of these two famous colleagues. This Cru Bourgeois produced a fairly decent wine until the arrival of Bernadette Villars in 1979. Her team was already making miracles at Chasse Spleen. This new wine suddenly made an incredible leap quality-wise. The most modern equipment was installed, and some of the abandoned plots were totally restored. Ten years later fifty great wine tasters, reunited for the "Essay on the Margaux style" chose it as one of the ten most typically Margaux wines, together with eight Grands Crus Classés and one Cru Bourgeois.

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.

50% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot, 5% petit verdot. Aged in 25% new oak. Deep ruby with a medium crimson rim. Pretty red fruit and roasted espresso on the nose give this elegant Margaux the aroma profile of a high class Burgundy. A bit austere to st... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 La Gurgue 750ml

Blueberries, raspberries, licorice, and flowers on the nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a racy and long finish. This is a wine, with form and finesse. Best ever from here. Try after 2018. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 La Gurgue 750ml

Has lots of plummy and ripe fruit, with hints of meat and spice. Full-bodied, soft and round, with lovely coffee and berry flavors.
