In 2004, the Perrodo family, owners of Château Labégorce, bought the vineyards of their neighbors, the Margaux Cru Bourgeois Château Labégorce Zédé, thus reuniting properties that had been split around the time of the French Revolution. Thus technically, Zédé de Labégorce is a “second” wine of Château Labégorce, although the former Labégorce Zédé vineyards were widely held to be the better-situated property. Confused? No need to be. This is wine represents terrific value from this exalted region — meaty but round and well fruited, supple and elegant, with silky tannins.
