Chateau La Gurgue 1999

90 points

Margaux, Bordeaux. 12.5%

This is rather good. The aromas are of a minerally claret, lacking fruit, but it opens up on the palate. Especially with food.

Very drinkable now but I think there would be reward in waiting a couple more years. It’s gaining complexity. Well done for a minor claret.

Unfortunately at retail it’s not cheap. I presume that it once was.

Bernadette Villars was (or is) the winemaker I’m told.
