Château La Gurgue Grand vin de Margaux
Grown from the deep gravels and coarse sands on limestone during favorable weather conditions and temperatures after going through rough changes in the seasons, the harvested by hand grapes were exceptional with tannins improved, which made way to an optimized quality of the vintage, soft and rich of elegance.

The vintage shows all the features of a great wine. A nice nose with a mix of fresh fruits, floral notes and spices. A very beautiful clarity of the fruit. On the palate, the tannins are polished and round. A nice balance between freshness, fruitiness and a silky tannic structure. The vintage is both elegant and dense. A very beautiful complexity.
