Château Labegorce

This majestic property, adjacent to Château Margaux and Château Lascombes, is cited in the 1868 edition of Edward Feret who notes the existence of the great soils of the Noble House of La Bégorce since 1332.

History
Situated along the famous Route des Châteaux, this elegant neoclassical castle extends over an area of ​two hundred and fifty acres of which seventy are under vine. Since its acquisition in 1989, the Perrodo family has been able to restore this property reviving its architectural brilliance and rebuilding its vast vineyard that gives birth to a charming wine with finesse and elegance. Hubert Perrodo, a businessman and industrial designer, was able to realize his goal of reuniting this prestigeous vineyard that was formely divided by it troubled history. His daughter Nathalie has followed in his footsteps and it is her vision that progresses the property forward today.

Terroir
The Labégorce vineyard occupies a prominent place in the famous appelation of Margaux. It carries the distinction of being one of the oldest vineyards in the Médoc. Along the famous Route des Châteaux, this elegant neoclassical castle, built by the great architect Corcelles, emerges from the vines on the gravel plateau of Moulin. Its heterogeneous soil, very characteristic of Margaux terroir is composed of fine gravel, clay-silty sands with limestone outcrops. This soil gives the wine of Château Labégorce all its complexity, finesse and powerful tannins.
