Run today by Claire Villars Lurton, daughter of the late Bernadette Villars, this has become one of Margaux’s best Cru Bourgeois.
The vineyards are situated just to the west of Château Margaux and cover 10 hectares. They are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) with a lesser quantity of Merlot (35%) and a splash (5%) of Petit Verdot. The vines have an average age of 35 years.
The harvest is manual with careful grape selection both in the vineyards and at the winery. Fermentation, in stainless steel vats takes about three weeks followed by ageing for 12 months in oak barriques, 25% of which are new.
Châtea La Gurgue combines elegance with concentration giving wines with excellent fruit – blackcurrants and blackberries – supported by polished oak and gentle tannins.
