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.
Jean-Pierre 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 porperty to help the declining bee population. the hives produce around 60kg of honey per year
The parcels used to produce the Chateau Larose ‘Les Hauts de Perganson‘ are in the heart of the Château Trintaudon estate which itself is on the borders of the Pauillac and St Julien Appellations, with very similar terroirs to its neighbour Château Latour. The vines are about 15 years old.
A cool and humid spring preceded a hot and dry summer which made this harvest one of the best of the last 20 years. Red wines have an exceptional sweetness, color and tannins; this is an opulent and rich vintage.
Les Hauts de Perganson is vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel vats with 15% of the blend put into third and fourth use barrels. The 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
The vintage in 2009 was superb and the resulting wine is lush and ripe with aromas of blackberries and cassis. The tannins are velvety and this wine is delicious to drink now
