Les Hauts de Perganson, Haut-Médoc 2016 - 75cl
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. JeanPierre 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.
VINEYARDS: The parcels used to produce the Château Larose 'Les Hauts de Perganson' are in the heart of the Château Trintaudon estate which sits on the borders of the Pauillac and St Julien appellations, with a very similar climate and soil profile to its neighbour Château Latour. The vines are on average 10 years old.
VINIFICATION: 'Les Hauts de Perganson' is vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with 15% of the blend put into third and fourthuse barrels. The 2014 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
TASTING NOTES: This wine is deep ruby red in colour. Lush and ripe, the bouquet is full with aromas of blackberries, cassis, sweet spices and vanilla. On the palate, its velvety tannins are balanced with excellent acidity. A delicious Bordeaux blend ready to drink now.
Food pairing :
Bordeaux wines from the Left Bank matches excellently with spicier, saltier, fattier, and heavy steaks and lambs. On the other hand, Right Bank Bordeaux red wines pair best with more savoury or leaner meats, such as duck or pork.
