Ch La Gurgue, Margaux 2016
Claire Villars Lurton was 25 when she took over the management of Châteaux Ferrière, Haut-Bages Libéral and La Gurgue. Over several years she has undertaken a major rebuilding of all the wineries. La Gurgue is located on the north-eastern flank of Margaux (and is close to Chateau Margaux itself), on a beautiful plateau in Curton where there is deep gravel soil. The vines average 30 years of age. This is benchmark classic, feminine Margaux with concentrated fruit, savoury notes and elegant, supple tannins.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot & 5% Petit Verdot
