PRODUCTS NOTE

Château Larose Perganson lies in Saint-Laurent-Médoc, on the border of Pauillac and Saint-Julien, next to the Château Latour vineyards. Here, winemaker Frank Bijon is producing a Cru Bourgeois that rivals the Classed Growths of the Médoc and the 2009 was named one of the ‘Best value Cru Bourgeois’ by Jancis Robinson in 2012. Jean-Pierre du Pontet, the King’s Council, purchased the Perganson estate at auction in 1719, which later became Pontet-Perganson when it was inherited by his youngest son. The Larose name first appeared in the 1830s, after Henry Delaroze became the owner in 1815. Sustainability has been key to Larose Perganson since 1999 and it is the first (and only) vineyard in Europe to have been awarded the highest Exemplary Level in Sustainable Development. They are so dedicated to sustainability that they keep bees on their property to help the declining bee population.

TASTING NOTE

A clear, intense colour and a bouquet of black berries with spicier notes coming to the fore. On the palate the wine is full with great structure and freshness, as well as polished, elegant tannins. Plenty of flavour and complexity. A very long lasting finish with great finesse.
