Description

Château La Gurgue is a benchmark Margaux estate, which shares favourable terroir characteristics of its illustrious neighbour, Château Margaux. La Gurgue is run by Claire Villars-Lurton, under whom it has become very much a property to keep an eye on, and a relative bargain in Margaux terms.

The 2018 La Gurgue is one of the little jewels of Margaux. Pliant, supple and inviting, the 2018 has so much to offer. All the elements are wonderfully fused together. Ripe red cherry, blood orange, mint and sweet floral notes all build as this racy Margaux shows off its sensuality and charm. Mildew was especially severe, and yields were just 12 hectoliters per hectare, but the wine is superb. The blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot.
93/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Tasted March 2021)
