Château Labegorce is situated close to Château Lascombes, and the estate has been on a steadily upswing since it was acquired by the Perrodo family in 1989. Hubert Perrodo was tragically killed in a skiing accident in 2006, but his daughter Nathalie now runs all the family estates extremely ably. Readers will recall the almost unbelievable ascent of Château Marquis d’Alesme in recent years … well that estate is also owned and managed by Nathalie Perrodo.
The recent arrival of Marjolaine de Coninck (as General Director) and the well-known oenologist Claude Gros have further improved the vineyard quality and winery facilities via significant investment. And of course, as a Margaux Third Growth, the underlying terroir has never been in question. Today Labegorce is an “estate on the uptick” (Jeb Dunnuck) which is finally “performing at its peak” (Wine Enthusiast).
