In 1978, Jacques Merlaut bough Château La Gurgue and entrusted it to his only daughter, Bernadette. She took over a property that had almost been abandoned, renovated the installations, replanted the vineyard and brought this great wine back to life, vintage after vintage. Ten years later, it was consecration: 50 great tasters gathered by “L’Essai sur le style de Margaux” selected it as one of the ten most typical wines of Margaux, alongside eight Grands Crus Classés of the appellation.
After Bernadette’s death, Claire took over from her mother, further refining the style of La Gurgue wine: seductive, true and sincere.
