Chateau Larose Perganson Haut-Medoc

Chateau Larose Perganson Haut-Medoc

€39.95
 
Château Larose Perganson lies in Saint-Laurent-Médoc, on the border of Pauillac and Saint-Julien, next to the vineyards of Château Latour. Winemaker Franck Bijon produces a Cru Bourgeois that rivals many Classed Growths. The wine is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. A cold soak prior to the start of fermentation ensures the extraction of good colour, while a long maceration (the length varies according to the vintage) results in supple tannins. The wine is aged in French oak barriques, about 30 – 50% of which are new, for 14 months prior to bottling. It has lovely intensity and balance and, though ready to drink now, will easily go on for another five years. This wine is intense ruby in colour with crimson hues. The nose shows hints of black berries with spicier notes coming to the fore. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with polished elegant tannins, great structure and a very long finish.
