Bordering on châteaux Margaux and Lascombes, this property is mentioned in the 1868 edition of Cocks and Feret (“Bordeaux and its Wines”), which tells us of the existence since 1332 of “a vineyard belonging to the noble La Bégorce family”. The château is described as “... one of the most beautiful and best situated in the town of Margaux”.
The Perrodo family acquired Labégorce in 1989 and renovated not only the château building, but also the vineyard. They also improved winemaking, and Labégorce is now a charming wine with beautiful structure, bright fruit, and great finesse. The Perrodo family also acquired in 2006 Château Marquis d’Alesme, a third growth Margaux, which they aim to transform into one of the jewels of the appellation.
