CHÂTEAU LA GURGUE
Claire Villars Lurton was 25 when she took over the management of Châteaux Ferrière, Haut-Bages Libéral and La Gurgue. Over a number of years, she has undertaken a major rebuilding of all the wineries. La Gurgue is located on the north eastern flank of Margaux, on a beautiful plateau in Curton where there is deep gravel soil.
The vines average 30 years of age and the blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The 2016 is drinking beautifully now and is benchmark elegant, feminine Margaux.
