Chteau Larose Perganson 2007 Château Larose Perganson 2007

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. It's a perfect, classic Claret and the 2007 is drinking really well now, while you wait for the 2005s, 2009s and 2010s!

Château Larose Perganson ís 35 hectares of vineyards are located in St Laurent Medoc on Medoc's finest gravelly soils: gunzian gravel from the Quaternary and Pyrenean gravel.

It produces consistently award-winning wines at a fraction of the price of its illustrious neighbours (Château Latour).

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Micro-oxygenation during post-fermentary maceration was done in proportion to the richness and quality of tannins of each vat.

Running off the wine and pressing the grape skins: press wines were kept separately and selected by tasting. The blending was done prior the wine was poured into barrels. The wine was matured 100% in barrels made with French oak from the Nievre and Allier forests for a period of 12 to 18 months. 30 to 50% of these oak barrels were new.

The final blending was done at the end of the maturation period and was decided by tasting.

An intense ruby colour. A jammy nose with roasted coffee and chocolate aromas as well as notes of toasted bread. A racy, fleshy, full-bodied wine with excellent acidity and elegance. The young tannins are already supple and well integrated insuring a delicate, silky finish. One definitely to be enjoyed now and for the next 3 - 4 years.
