Château Labégorce-Zédé Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2005

Château Labégorce-Zédé:
This part of the property, where the original chateau was located, situated on gravelly land on Margaux's highest knolls, was surrounded by the most famous vineyards of this village.

This part of the property, where the original chateau was located, situated on gravelly land on Margaux's highest knolls, was surrounded by the most famous vineyards of this village. The wines of L'Abbé Gorsse Pérès, like those of Labégorce Rooryck, were the leading crus bourgeois supérieurs of Margaux and the first time they were exhibited, in 1905 in Liege, they won both a Gold Medal and a Grand Prize. Château Margaux bought the vineyard back and, in 2002, Hubert Perrodo acquired the 17th century building. Labégorce is the heart of the estate: in the centre of the property stands an elegant, Restoration-era, neo-classical mansion, the work of the architect Corcelles (1765-1843). When it was built, the owner was Elisabeth Weltener, the widow of Jean Marcellin Bernard. It later passed in to the hands of Mr Capelle in 1832. Mr Fortuné Beaucourt then also acquired it in 1865. The vineyard continued to be lovingly tended and its wine earned a well-deserved reputation for being of the highest quality, with an exquisite taste and distinguished bouquet. The new owner of the estate, who was of strong character, was twice Mayor of Margaux. He kept a close watch on the village's interests. He undertook a great deal of renovation work on the chateau, managed by the architect Georges Minvielle (1867-1893). The estate was sold to the Rooryck family in 1918, then to the Condom family in 1965, before finally Hubert Perrodo bought it in 1989. Read less

Located in Soussans, Labegorce Zede is planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. It is aged in 40-50% new oak. This lesser known chateau (at least to American consumers), one of the nine crus bourgeois exceptionnels, has a solid track record and deserves the attention of Bordeaux drinkers. The '05 has a soft, fresh, clean nose with ample fruit in reserve along with well-judged oak. It is medium weight, long and expressive, with the structure to permit a decade or more of cellaring. Highly recommended and a very good value. Robert Parker 87-89, Wine Spectator 89-91.
