Sometimes described as very Pauillac like in style Château Larose Perganson has been part of Larose Trintaudon since the eighteenth century but the wine from the property has only been vinified separately since 1993, under the direction of winemaker and general manager Franck Bijon. The property borders Pauillac and St Julien, adjacent to the vineyards of Château Batailley, as well as some plots owned by Ducru Beaucaillou.
It is one of our personal favourites, and this 6 bottle limited edition vertical mixed wooden case from 2006 through to 2011 was prepared by the Chateau exclusively for Bordeaux Shippers offering a unique opportunity on a brilliant Crus Bourgeois. Don't miss out..
|Dark and intense nose of silky blackcurrant and blackberries. Stylish and textured palate, with sweet attack, then rich and intense fruitiness and soft tannins.|
|91||Almost black in color, this is a solid, firm and ripe wine. It has a smooth wood character that is round and rich with black plum and berry fruit flavors. With its dark underlying texture, it will age|
|88||Features a mouthwatering edge, with a brisk iron note running alongside the fresh plum, cherry and black currant fruit. A hint of smoldering charcoal fills out the finish.|

Forward new oak on the nose with vanilla, powerful black fruits and violets. Rich, flamboyant, concentrated, complex and spicy, with bags of vigour, tight and structured, peppery and long. Shows the character of the Haut-Médoc in the best way. Very, very good.
|92||A wine with sweet strawberries and raspberries on the nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious finish. This is balanced and savory for the vintage. And it's an environmentally sustainable winery.|
|90||Sports bold, modern toast, with overt anise and blueberry notes leading the way, backed by racy plum and raspberry fruit. The solid finish shows the vintage's telltale graphite spine, offering lively acidity for balance.|
|90||A sleeper of the vintage and impressive is their cuvee called Larose Perganson, which in 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. It has the silkiness of its sibling, but is fuller-bodied, with more layers of fruit and glycerin and a heady finish (14.3% alcohol). It is opulent and pure, with loads of cassis, black raspberry and licorice notes backed up with some subtle oak. Drink it over the next decade.|
|89-92||Blackberry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with solid tannins and a polished, silky finish. Best ever from here.|
|17||Healthy crimson. Very sophisticated, swish perfume. Tastes as though an enormous amount of attention has been lavished on this wine. Top-quality oak for a start and really concentrated fruit. Lively and ripe. Great balance.|

|SILVER||International Wine Challenge.|
|16||Good crushed black/red berries. Nice vineyard character and well-lifted, well-expressed Medoc fruit. Fine oak.|
|16.5||Deep crimson. Rather luscious nose – much more concentration than you would expect. The first vintage with the Arcins portion up to 50% in the blend, plus their top parcels around Larose-Trintaudon. Very complex and lively. Excellent!|
|16.3||Discreet, complex fruit and spice nose. Broadens on the palate with ample berry and plum fruit. Balanced.|

RESPONSIBLE VINEYARD – VIGNOBLE RESPONSABLE®
Nestling between the villages of Saint-Julien-de-Beychevelle and Pauillac, of Moulis and Margaux, the vineyards are planted on gravel stratum dating from the 1st tertiary period and the quaternary. Their desire is to perpetuate and pass on four centuries of history, and we have therefore adopted sustainable viticultural practices in order to protect the fragile ecosystems of these ancient terroirs.
The initiative began in 1999 when the innovative decision was taken to adopt Certification in order to assure clients of the Quality of our wines in the context of European scandals in the food industry.
Over the years constant improvements have been made, a new management system has been put in place, respect for the environment has clearly become a great priority, and staff training a positive factor in our development. Year in and year out we have obtained and maintained Iso 9001, ISO 14001 and Reasoned Agriculture certifications. Risk management is now a major aspect in our business strategy. All our actions are designed to guarantee the equilibrium of our Sustainable Development policy.
In 2010 our policy was rated ‘Exemplary’ at the level of AFAQ 26000 Sustainable Development by Afnor. We are the very first European vineyard to obtain this level of recognition.
