Château Labégorce

  • Bordeaux


The history of Château Labégorce is one of the oldest of the Margaux designation. The property was quoted as, “one of the most beautiful, well-located [Chateaux] in the town of Margaux” according to the Édouard Féret’s 1868 edition of his famous guide. Like other Châteaux in Bordeaux, Château Labégorce’s name came from one of its first owners. In the 14th century, the Gorsse family owned the property, and it was considered to be one of the largest in Médoc of its time.  After the revolution, the property was divided into three different properties: the Château Labégorce, Château de l’Abbé Gorsse de Gosse, and Château Labégorce Zédé.  A manufacturer and polo player, Hubert Perrodo purchased the three properties between 1989 and 2005 in order to amalgamate them again. Known at the time as Château Labégorce, the estate was spread out over 55 hectares (135.9 acres).  Upon Hubert Perrodo’s death, his daughter Nathalie Perrodo-Samani followed in her father’s footsteps at Châteaux Labégorce, Giscours, and Marquis d’Alesme.  For over a decade, the Château’s wines have received several medals and have been listed in the greatest wine guides.
