In ‘the thorny shrub’ that the etymology of «gorsse» proffers for the splendid vineyards of Labégorce today, generations of lords and farmers have succeeded in shaping the identity of the estate. A vision was also needed, an intuition that reveals the great potential of a territory through the ambition that the vision carries. Hubert Perrodo’s great vision in 1989 centred on the tradition of those who had loved this land over the centuries. Therefore, more than two hundred years after the division of the property in three parts (Labégorce Margaux, Labégorce Zédé and Labbé Gorsse de Gorsse), he has overcome the crazy challenge of putting them back together. The nouveau grand Labégorce (since the 2009 vintage) offers a lively fruit flavoured palette, extensive, rich, complex, smooth, lined with delicate tannins and great finesse.
The Labégorce 2020 is deeply colored. Nice notes of cigar box, truffle, cedar, cassis, liquorice and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, rich, lush, intense, long and energetic, the round finish lingers with layers of punchy, fresh, showy blackberry and chocolate notes.
